This appears to be a recurring problem for design puzzles with long sequences (say, >200 amino acids) or variable lengths (i.e. those that allow the insertion or removal of segments). My guess is that the former might be a memory/stack issue, while the latter is due to the lack of one-to-one correspondence between the current structure and the solution being loaded as a guide.

Yes, looks like it happen when guide and current puzzle have different length.
