Your first solution was what I wanted. What I didn't know was that you
could give different numbers of elements to xtickv and xticks. If you look
back at what I wrote, I put in xticks=10 for that example, which forced it
to use all my tick values, instead of xticks=8 which tells it to use only
the first 9 values.
