I agree.

sam> 2- How to fix problems?

Part of the problem is that Mike and myself don't quite understand
what's going on in that function. I read a bit more on it, and now at
least understand why the RUN_JUSTAFTER is necessary.
I will try to write a suggestion for a new implementation, but
probably won't find the time until next weekend :(

Actually, it's the format() that causes the assert in problem 1 since
it tries to do coordinate math before the document has been padded
with empty Runs.
