Right, I didn't pay much attention. Apologies.

Same error (of mine) as above, you correctly used a group with three bands.

You mean the _un_supervised I guess.

Sorry for my typo -- I meant to write "only with 1 class?", "can you try with
more than 1 class, i.e. 3 or 4 classes?".

I don't think it is broken as it usually works/ed fine. But we'll try to nail
