#294 new defect - wrong answer

inconsistency between two sums of the total continuum

Component: radiative transfer Version: trunk

A summer school participant pointed out that two sums which are advertised as being the same quantity, are slightly different. At r9474 with gcc/mac the smoke test results in these two entries in the main block of emission line

Inci       0     2.562 
TALL 10000.0A    2.559 

They are the same thing - the sum over the full radiation field. They differ by 0.003 dex, ~0.7%. Due to differences in the quadrature used for Inci vs the simple sum used for TALL?

From "save line labels"

6	Inci       0 		total luminosity in incident continuum
332	TALL 10000.0A		continuum bands defined in continuum_bands.ini

From continuum_bands.ini

# this is everything 
TALL 1.0m 1e-6m 10000.0m
