Thanks Colin.  I don't know enough about c++ to make a stab at fixing it 
either.  There is a .deb of version 4.4.1 available, and that works but has 
a z axis bug, so I was trying to see if I could get the newer version to 

It may be possible to work around the z axis bug by doing the z stuff 
outside it, using this generators output as a callable subroutine.  I guess 
that will have to be investigated.  Doing that however, requires that the 
solution to the traveling salesman problem be repeated by the machinery for 
each increment of the Z cut, which can be and is time consuming when the 
machines free speeds are limited by stepper motor characteristics.

Thanks for looking, Colin.

Cheers, Gene
