from what you sent, there appears to be a serious bug in PET, but it
is not actually chaining orthographemic rules. the [incr tsdb()]
derivations sows the actual tree, and if one knows how to read the
verbose debugging output carefully, it shows exactly the same tree.
the lists of rules in square brackets indicate remaining
orthographemic rules needed for ‘completion’, i.e. to satisfy the
segmentation hypothesis generated at the string level prior to
parsing. so the surprising observation is that an edge with a non-
empty inflr_todo value (the list in brackets) can qualify as a result.
if you checked the current grammar version into the LOGON tree and
emailed instructions on how to replicate the problem, maybe peter
could be enticed to have a look?
