No, that's not it.
The problem really is that when you use "[W1][WR1]" Genbox considers the
witness to be mentioned, but if you use "[W+1][WR1]" it's as if the witness
wasn't mentioned before as far as [WWR] knows.
See http://www.zog.org/genea/images/zelie1.gif for the data;
http://www.zog.org/genea/images/zelie2.gif should work but doesn't
http://www.zog.org/genea/images/zelie3.gif with [?WWR], no difference
http://www.zog.org/genea/images/zelie4.gif works but omits the last name in
repeat occurences ([W1] instead of [W+1]).
Nope, it's a bug I tell you!
