Re-running the various tests I did earlier, the new version wins over unstable in all cases. So that is good now. I'm glad we found this issue.

Back to my original concern: With this patch, we exhaust length 1 at candidate number 2778514 and length 2 at 458516707. Changing that "est floor" formula from 0.9 to 1.0 for length 0 (1) doesn't make any difference anymore. I'll continue experimenting and I'll also try to establish when we have exhausted length 3 and 4 without (and maybe with) changes from this version.
