Not that part - it accepts a window the same length as the sequence (oddcomp 
can read more than one sequence, and does have to skip those too short to fit 
a window).

A later loop does fail if the window size matches the sequence - I am testing 
allowing it to run just one more time :-)

Snakke de fortran?

Same problem I believe - it is the window size matching sequence length that 
stops the last for loop from checking anything.
