Stephen,
this is strictly not a prog issue, but a minor stats error.  Since some days the totalling of total particles simulated shows a shrinking value.  Now one reads some 20 billion for the whole community, but adding it up (rawstats.txt) should lead to some 28 billion.  Could you have at look at it, whenever you find a minute time ?

Yes I noticed that too.  It seems to alternate between somewhere near the correct value and several billion below that.  It's reassuring that muon1rawstats.txt contains the correct figures by totalling that column because it suggests this is a roll eyes-arithmetic error in the adding up rather than a mad-error caused by mis-parsing the results database.

There's still a bug in the stats concerning the sum of all particles.  If you have a look into the stats for the teams, the sum may be much over 50 billion.

Ah, I hadn't coded for individual people's scores being much over 1 billion.  Essentially I'd forgotten to carry some "billions" over when adding up in double precision.  It should be fixed now.
