Autoguider ACQUIRE doesn't pull in

The ICS JPROBE task makes it possible to let the TCS move the guide probes. When doing an ACQUIRE in the default guide star aqcuisition mode, the TCS sends commands to the ICS to change the guide probe position such that the guide star will appear in the middle of the autoguider field.

If the JPROBE task is dead, ACQUIRE will go on endlessly but will achieve nothing. You can solve this by stopping the guider and then a STARTOBSSYS on lpss10.
