encoding errors?

The fixed part of the puzzle has several long straight elements that look to me like position coding errors. One such element runs near the active area and may make the solution useless??? If these aren't errors please tell us what's going on here. Thanks!!

chain breaks

these are just breaks in the chain that Foldit has instead connected with long segments. Since they are occurring in the locked segments, it should not affect your remodeling of the terminus.
