[snip] Daniel Lichtblau followed this up with me offline. The short of it is that, yes, I uncovered a real bug that existed in Mathematica from about March, 2004 until about November, 2004. My version of Mathematica was built in October, 2004. The problem is fixed in later versions. Scott -- Scott Hemphill hemphill at alumni.caltech.edu "This isn't flying.
