At the moment, I'm leaning toward the idea that the program is broken . . . but hopefully we can get Dr. Sanford on TWeb soon enough and have some clear back-n-forth.

Every time they add a feature it seems to overlap another feature and reduce the effect of selection. "Probability selection" interacts with "Heritability". "Fraction of mutations beneficial" interacts with "maximum beneficial effect".

How does Mendel's Accountant handle "probability selection". If they use Roulette Wheel selection, then it seems to negate the number of offspring setting. Nor does Roulette Wheel selection have a problem maintaining the population as suggested in the manual.

I took a look at the source code, but it doesn't seem formatted for readability.
