And the wrong order of the calling positions.

Between the time I typed the place notation into the thing and the time I 
collected the numbers and wrote the email talking about it I forgot that the 
method I was using wasn't Yorkshire, it was Rutland.

How embarrassing. I really should have looked at the results, and not just the 
numbers. Sorry.

"If I only had a brain".

For Yorkshire instead of Rutland, I get an even tinier search:

With the breadth first pre-optimi[sz]ation:

   1,727 node visitations, in 190 msec, 4.2 per Mcycle

Without the breadth first pre-optimization:

   7,259 node visitations, in 200 msec, 16.8 per Mcycle

Sigh. Apologies again for having screwed up by not proof reading.

I come up with 10 total without shunts, but 14 total if I include
shunts, so we're probably getting the same results after all.

Again, abject apologies.
