No failure at all. Last night I worked out and added the one parts,
and figured out that the three part was good for Diamond, too, in
response to your message.

I don't think it's all that bad on the little bell count, especially
for such part ends. By my reckoning it's only got six fewer than
yours, if you count them both at the back and at the front:

			   MBD 1-part      DFM 3-part
	      1234s             4
	      4321s             6             12
	      2345s             7
	      5432s            11             16
	      3456s             8              6
	      6543s            10
	      4567s             6              6

1234s off the front             7             10
4321s off the front             6             12
2345s off the front             3              3
5432s off the front             6              5
3456s off the front             3              2
6543s off the front             4              1
