Here's a quick fix.  A full solution involves thinking a lot more about what happens to 
pixels near the origin wrt phi in the polar representation.

@pkienzle also says:

The code for generating resolution should not be in the GUI.  Put it in 
sascalc/fit/ or sasmodels/ so that the qt gui 
can use the same code.

A proper estimate of resolution requires too many details about the experiment configuration for the fitting panel. Could we perhaps attach it to the Q resolution estimator window that we already have?

Note: playing with resolution estimator, it seems to always give the same value for sigma x and sigma y even when the resolution is clearly an ellipse. That should be fixed before using the calculator elsewhere. Hammouda's online SANS course (ch 15, pg 9) has formulas for sigma x and sigma y.

Resolution calculator note turned into Ticket #1244.
