      Hi again,

      This one seems to be a bug related to the magnitude of the numbers being
      processed by autorange. When I try it with smaller numbers (eg. 42) it
      works properly (adds appropriate margins) but with very large numbers it's
      not finding an appropriate margin value. Will fix for next release.

      Workaround is to do something like this:
      yautorange: datafield=2 margin=1000000
