<blush again>.  I realised that I'd stuffed it up just after I went home.  Too much rushing at the end of the day.

Looking at:

I should have been more careful, since obviously a Pspam and Pnonspam ranging from 0->1 will not end up with many scores near 350, unless there are some *very* accurate floating point numbers.

Apologies for the foolishness.
