Maybe you need to KNOW the kinetics (to be able to slow them down) in
order to FIND the kinetics. ;-) But what is the real problem: "working
well every blue moon" suggests not simply instability, but uncontrolled
instability. How fast is it, anyway, and what is it, and maybe I know
how to find as many blue moons as you need.
