I took a look at logpwrfft's code and the first thing that is done to that
number is ref_scale/2, so you need to pass in a float (1.0) rather than an
integer to not get it truncated to zero. Sounds like something to fix.

The GRC definition for the block doesn't let you set it but there actually
is a parameter win which defaults to Blackman-Harris.
