The coordinate locking problem is caused by the removal of the preload motors for repair.

They were in the system providing a small amount of preload but were not “active”.

I don’t think restarting ACE will solve the problem.  Just press cancel and try GO again.

Had to restart ACE control 3x because of coordinate locking problem. Planned to use spectrograph for last hour, but the lock problem cropped up again and it didn't seem worth it to restart everything once I had the acquisition view set up.
