user_mul and cam_matrix parameters not working

Hi Alex,

First of all, I am amazed how you keep responding to all the comments in the forum. If there is a PayPal link to donate to your efforts, please let me know. I'd like to invite you for a beer.

Second: I am having trouble getting user_mul[] multipliers to work. In the code I am using I has the following steps

libraw_data_t *alldata = libraw_init(0);
alldata->params.user_mul = .... and all other parameters
libraw_processed_image_t *proc = libraw_dcraw_make_mem_image(alldata,&err);

and then I work with *proc. For some reason, whatever values I enter for user_mul, *proc always seems to give me the raw data.

Third: Does the algorithm use the camera matrices in its interpolation calculation? If so, can that be turned off? I tried use_camera_matrix=0, but just as user_mul, it doesn't do anything. I am processing astronomy images and there is a slight chromatic aberration to the images, causing stars to be slightly offset. Because of this, I assume, the interpolation goes nuts and yields pixels with zero values near bright sources. That's not good.
