are you sure your constant is zero? Its colour does not tell you anything
about the actual value, you need to find out about this using "review
design" and browsing the design matrix (I believe holding down left mouse
and moving your mouse around will print design matrix values).
Things change after model estimation, because then your filtered (in
time resp. non-sphericity) design matrix will be displayed.
