   This function plots the positions of several groups of
   samples across all the components of an
   \code{\link[MineICA:IcaSet-class]{icaSet}} object.
   For each subgroup of samples this function plots their
   positions within the histogram of the global sample
   The values of interest are the sample contributions
   across the components, i.e across the columns
   If argument \code{resClus} is not missing, the
   association between the clusters and the sub-groups of
   samples is tested using a chi-square test. The p-values
   of these tests are available in the title of each plot.
