Just to clarify for the list, there is a new AutoMR GUI in the current  
nightly builds.  (Not for Phaser itself - that's on the to-do list.)   
It will feed results directly to AutoSol if you are trying to phase  
with MR-SAD.

Felix already figured out the answer, but it's a little confusing:  
AutoMR (like Phaser) is flexible about how you specify the component  
mass, but you can only use one source of information - defining both  
the sequence and the mass will result in an error message.  More  
generally, in the GUI 'None' (which is really the standard Python null  
value, not some Phenix-specific keyword) is translated to a blank  
string, so if you want to set a parameter to None, just leave the  
field blank.
