I agree this looks wrong. Unfortunately I don't remember why I put this in.
Normally something like this would go in to workaround some specific problem
encountered. I'll look some more at this.

Koening search technique implementation is unstable;

I would leave this question to those who know more about this subject.

this looks right to me - I'll look into it
