Hi Gulab,

The newest xspec release has introduced some changes that are
incompatible with the xspec module in the currently released
version of isis.  I discovered this particular problem
yesterday and after getting past it with a simple workaround, 
I encountered another problem as well.

As soon as I've resolved these problems, I'll release a new
version of isis.

Thanks,
-John
