the problme is that you have several control points in voxels that aren't entirely wm. For example, 129, 134, 173 is a control point and it has no wm in it. This causes the intensity in that region to go up way too high, as we will normalize the control points to the desired wm intensity (110). I ran it without any control points and it worked pretty well. You should probably get rid of your control.dat. If you think that those thin frontal strands should go out a bit further, since some voxels that are entirely white matter (e.g. 134, 135, 162) but have an intensity that is less than 110 (this one is 103 after normalizating) and it will bring the intensity up a bit in that entire region (by the ratio of 110/103).
