The function get_segment_count() returns 61 in puzzle 479b. If there would be 61 segments in the main structure I'd be happy. There are only 29 segments. If I also count the mirror segments as valid segments, the number should be 58, even.

Where do those 3 segments come from ?

In short, Rosetta magic. The extra residues are necessary to position things correctly in 3D space relative to one another, but you don't have to concern yourself with these.

The lua function should be fixed in the next release to return the correct number.
