[r-t] Exhausted search spaces

There are a couple of very old searches that I did with a predecessor of  
this program around 2001 listed at

They're hardly noteworthy.

My search over PB6 is still running and has an 18GB output file. It's  
reached the point where the root of the tree is ppppbbpbpppb. I suspect  
that it's a good way through and we're looking at only a couple of days to  

I'm going to kill it now because
  1. I need my computer for other things
  2. I'm going to run out of disk space in a few more hours
  3. and it's really the most pointless exhaustive search, it's not like  
any one of the results contains a better/musical set of rows.
