Ken

Hope this gets through all right as I'm new to this and had to construct the email out
of the digest

Doing a little experimenting it appears that 459, CDY and 413 do not react in this
way

but 464 and 395S1 do

lots of room there for confusion and some interesting Ysearch constructions

Did you check CDY or 459?
