What I was claiming had changed (in response to
the fact that your description of the problem had
changed).  I was saying in that last message was
that the difference between 1 and 0 is stark enough
you couldn't have missed it - not that you had
confused #t and #f.  I stand by that claim, but we
will never know, and this has gone far away from
a useful discussion.
