Works now, thanks!

Yes, please remove it.  IMHO, it doesn't make sense to have this
feature in waterfall mode.

Two ideas:

* What about showing the pixel (or point) size at the beginning of the
  waterfall?  Ideally, the font itself should be used for displaying
  this, however, chances are very high that the font in question
  doesn't contain proper glyphs for it, or that the font is cheating
  (this can happen for very old fonts), displaying completely
  different glyphs for the given character codes.  So you should use a
  font that actually has the necessary glyphs :-)

* What about providing control for the waterfall's start, stop, and
  increment values?  For the default values, I think it doesn't make
  sense to have lines for px < 4 or 5...

Of course.
