Definitely fix this, top priority. Misunderstanding of how this was to be treated.

While doing this, be sure to double-check the flow of the reduction, being sure that all the files are freshly loaded, then freshly polarization corrected before the reduction proceeds -- so that any of the files present in the WORK folders are the correct files, not some stale file that may be incorrect - and the user will never know.

  • made the BGD a single input, independent of the polarization state.
  • Also changed the flow of the reduction to force re-loads of the EMP and SAM files, and to re-do the polarization correction every time a protocol is executed. this way, the "_pc" files will be guaranteed to be correct. The old way simply copied the files over, with no regard to their history. This new way is rather redundant, doing the loading and math unnecessarily, but will always be correct.
