[Eeglablist] the activity power spectrum of the ICA component looks not smooth

Dear Hui,

Oh yes this is familiar to me. This is most probably because spectrum
computation mistakenly calculate only the first trial of the data. I
thought this was fixed in the updated version of EEGLAB. If you have a
reason not to use the other versions, please check EEGLAB BUGZILLA 698.
Below are the copy from there.

spectopo.m line 650

where, in my case, epoch_subset = [1 1 1 1 1 1...]. This analyzes only the
first trial. This is unacceptably misleading, so let me report this as a
blocker. I remember the same thing happened to me before and I fixed it for
myself, but this time I totally forgot it and wondered what was wrong with
my data. As a temporally solution, I added 

epoch_subset = find(epoch_subset == 1);

in the line643 after 'else'.

This does not happen when I use the ver. 6.01. I'm not sure though if this
always happens.
