Guide Probe dx/dy motions

Problem(s) Encountered:

No problems, except xmis refused to execute dx and dy commands for some reason, though it did execute changes in absolute position.


The apparent malfunction of the MIS guide probe dx and dy commands reported a few nights ago turned out to be due to the fact that requests for moves >= 1000 units are ignored, with no error message.  There is no good reason for this.  When I tried 999 units, it worked!
