nseg and spatially nonuniform parameters

When nseg is increased, continuous inhomogeneities are not automatically recomputed,
Instead all range variables that are added get the values of the old segment they are
contained in. This is fine for constants but one should consider re-executing the code that
sets range variables after an nseg change if continuous functions of range variables are
involved. The CellBuilder in "Continuous Create" mode will recompute the inhomogeneous
range variables when dlambda is changed.However if one uses the hoc file derived from
the CellBuilder and changes the segmentation then the proc biophys_inhomo() for that
instance should be called.
