Update_edit for Fit_meniscus doesn't always work

Description

For XP/w7 version 1170: FM data retrieved from the supercomputers look fine and the parabolic fitting function works as well as finding the new minimum to be defined as the meniscus position. The update_edit button does not always change to be 'clickable' when the data are plotted and fitted. There is unusual behavior to when it works. On W7, last night, the update_edit option worked on 3/7 data sets. One data set was not yet returned from the supercomputer. Today at work on my XP system, 4 of the remaining 4 worked; however, the remaining file returned later did not work on the XP system. I have tried deleting 2dsa-fm*.dat, rescanning and opening the file again and get the same result. I called my wife and she was able to use the update_edit option on the W7 system, the system that did not work for about half the sets previously. So, using a combination of different operating systems, I can always use update_edit.

I should mention that I had no problems like this with about 10 earlier sets with the same US3 version. This problems just started happening when I started working remotely.

Changes to us_fit_meniscus for versions 1174 and 1175 corrected some problems with reading fit records and with the behavior of Update Edit and models,noises deletes. So, the problems described in this ticket may already be fixed with later software revisions.

Additionally, there is a remaining requirement that the edit record exist both locally and in the DB. Models and noises may exist only in the DB, but their parent edit must also exist locally. If not, the Update Edit may be disabled. You can use us_manage_data to simply download a copy of the edit to local file(s), if need be.
