I think we should integrate the TS with magnum-jumbo or improve the
self-test so that no error is passed undetected. Once you have modified the
code , it becomes really difficult to identify the true source of error. If
the error is detected in early phase then it is much easier to debug and
identify the source of error. Now I find that one of my very early version
of code is cracking correctly. So I would have restart from there.
