I see that my vegs are still clumping together in 2.42.9 as in 2.42.8c. Just wondering if you're working on it?    I think this problem was actually solved many months ago because I haven't seen it for a long time until now. I'm thinking there is something in my vegs behavior that causes it; the way they have evolved.
The internet is corrupt and controlled by criminally minded people.

I'm a really old man and can barely remember my name on Sunday mornings much less specific bugs in the fuzzy past.  If you want me to do something about this, you have have to reference a past topic or post a sim so I have something to go on in the coffee enhanced here and now....
