Hmmmmm.... this sounds familiar. Hasn't this been reported before? I may
be wrong but wasn't it Morten Wang who reported this problem years ago?
Or maybe it was Ian?
If I remember correctly Ian (Shaw) and Morten are the two users who have
built the biggest bearoff databases. Maybe one of them knows something?
Worst case we could make a limit of 13 point for the one sided database.
This would be a bad solution though since storeage of several Gigabytes
is no problem anymore.
