As long as you've refined in C9, the postprocessing will take the C9
symmetry into account. Often it is the mask used for post-processing
that causes problems. Is the red line in the generated pdf logfile (the
FSC between the phase-randomised maps) around zero beyond 4-4.5A
resolution? If not, that needs fixing.
