One of them has two 7's in the 21 cage at the lower left, but still gives credit for a solution. (One solution has 3-5-6-7 in that cage, the other 2-5-7-7.)

It's not even flagging the double 7 as an error...But presumably you don't get points for that solution, right?

 Author: pnm  [ Sat Oct 13, 2012 1:04 pm ] Post subject: Re: October 13 Difficult Kindly Sudoku All fixed now, thanks again for reporting.Uncovered a tricky bug in the code that checks the solution numbers:the numbers sequence was seen as a large integer, so the comparisonfailed for large puzzles, because the integer was too large (!)(although I would have liked that in that case the comparison says thenumbers are not equal..)Edit: amazingly, one minute after I put up the fix, someone submitteda solution with the double 7! (which now wasn't accepted)(because they loaded the page earlier, the "submission prevention"wasn't in there yet)
