[pymvpa] Zscore creates nan in dataset

I found the problem - I am using zscore to normalize according to baseline.
In default, zscore is done by chunks.
In some of my pre-defined chunks, there were no baseline scans included,
therefore, created nan vectors.
It was solved by adding baseline samples to every chunk.
Thanks for your support!
