Doing dev (beta) on symmetry puzzle, allowed all updates (Mac OS 10.6) - but the middle segment is still locked...

Banding each seg of the helix to the other and wiggling, this is what you get:

Yes, this is a significant flaw with all puzzles and has been noted before. Tlaloc said it was a part of the puzzle fixation system. I think it warrants a bit of work by the foldit team because it is difficult to work around from our side.

Sigh, I know, Tony - but it was recently fixed - then recently broken again - then yesterday jflat said it was fixed again...

Jeff, is this bug fixed but not released yet?

This bug is ONLY on symmetry puzzle, dev and main.
Rest of puzzles is not affected.

My apologies. I didn't realize the bug had been fixed on the other puzzles. I will have to look for another excuse for not doing well!
