I find that statement hard to believe.  I didn't tell you out of how many
cases!  806 out of a million words is not very high to me.  See my original
report.  Many of the failure cases are peculiar sequences that we disagree
with Uniscribe on.  Anyway, I'll look into it more closely.  I think I should
go ahead and make frequency-adjusted first.
