Hi Anne,

I had a look at it and think it is a bug with poles and zeros that have
_exactly_ one pole (or zero). It seems that internally this gets
converted to a single value instead of a list of a single value. I'm not
that familiar with the internals of the xseed Parser so i'll wait for
Robert's or Lion's opinion..
