Error when uploading solution

On puzzle 783, I saved a promising solution with a disulfide bond between the dimers. Then I tried to upload it to share with my group and I get the following error:

Error reading puzzle_995989_time_1380087166.ir_solution[BUFFER]; bond declared where bond cannot exist

This bug is repeatable.

Another member of my group complained of a similar error under similar circumstances.

Do the developers need any additional information to help solve the problem?

A member of Anthropic Dreams has had the same issue trying to share their solution, every time. Sharing is not possible a.t.m.

I had the same error. Not even that, I can't even load the solution myself. If it has got anything to do with that, I can inform that my solution had 2 disuphide bonds from the original protein to the symmetric copy.

Also when returning to the track from which this solution was saved, I couldn't restore the very best solution. Since I had reset to puzzle to start a new track, this means that I have lost my top scoring solution.

Thanks for the reports, everyone. We're looking into it!

The problem gets worse. When I closed the client and tried to reopen it, I cannot get back to my high scoring (rank 5) solution. I get precisely the same error quoted above. Will have to start over :-(

removing disulfs allows save/share

I removed the 5 disulfs got solution at 249, saved/shared (with Scientists) now successful

This will be a huge issue for 792

With 10 cysteines, players will have disulphide bonds and not realize it until they can't get at their solution.

I'd suggest taking the puzzle down immediately before there are a lot of players having this issue - and losing a lot of time and effort!

Thank you for catching and reporting this so fast!

We'll have a different Puzzle up very soon, one without this nasty bug (that we are still trying to track down!), thanks again!

We have finally been able to find and fix this nasty bug!

It will go out in the next update (which will hopefully be very soon), thanks again for your patience with this one!

I downloaded the new client today, but I still cannot load my solution from 783 with similar error "problem with non polymer bonds". Is that solution lost forever?
