[Eeglablist] Problems with the whiteness of the residuals

Dear Bethel and John,

I also often encounter this problem. It seems there is no guaranteed
solution for this. I almost always use order == 30 with piecewise
detrending on. Maybe you want to decrease the ICs to include (which could
be against your experimental interest, I know...)

Should we contact Tim?
