For clarity, it is the frequency response that varies, but that does 
mean that the gain for fast variations reduces.  Note that, because of 
the oversampling, the cut off frequency corresponding to poll 8 is 
several times (well over an order of magnitude) less than 4mHz (m used 

Incidentally, as you have huffnpuff set, your problem may be related to 
the problem that needs this setting, or might be an adverse side effect.
