I'm happy to report that having multiple histogram blocks in addition to
the ABF block works beautifully. At the same time it's also possible to run
the analysis.

One question regarding the *runAveStride:*
Is this the number of steps between two points inside the length window? so
if I have runAveStride 10 and runAveLength 100, then it will only average
ten points?
What I would really like is to output every 100th step the average for the
last 100 steps.

Best regards,
