As for a flat statement that the number of generations is the
problem, I would disagree. That might narrow down the search for the
problem, but the number of generations is only a pointer toward the
problem. For some users, the problem you are experiencing may occur
at the same place, earlier (even in the first generation), or later
(in maybe the 249th generation) -- all dependant on what the problem
is and the data involved. Have you tried the Master Document
feature? If not, try it.

That is one more way of determining the problem. It may also even
point to the person (possibly even the Tag) that is causing the
problem. If the problem then is not in the data but in the way TMG
processes that person's data then I would agree that the problem is a
program problem. So, until we get to what the problem is we don't
know if it is a program or data problem.

PS Please note that I have changed the Subject above. I assume you
receive TMG through the Digest mode. Thus when replying to a message
in a Digest, you need to change it to what the actual Subject is as
most Digests cover many Subjects.
