topoplotER and timelockstatistics output

Dear all,

I am receiving a "Index exceeds matrix dimensions" error message when trying
to plot the output (e.g., stat.mask) of the cluster-based non-parametric
statistic and the very last value of the stat.mask is a "1". Temporarily,
this problem could be solved when setting the last value to "0" (e.g.,
stat.mask(274) = 0).



>> cfg = [];     = 'blank';
cfg.layout    = '/home/senk/PROGRAMS/fieldtrip-20080826/CTF274.lay';
cfg.highlight = find(stat.mask);
cfg.comment   = 'no';
figure; topoplotER(cfg, GA19_ERF_P)
title('Nonparametric: significant with cluster multiple comparison correction')

reading layout from file /home/senk/PROGRAMS/fieldtrip-20080826/CTF274.lay
??? Index exceeds matrix dimensions.
