Frequency of BstE II cutting?

If BstE II has a restriction site of GGTNACC, does it cut at the same
frequency as a six-cutter (i.e. an average 1 in 4096 disregarding sequence
distribution considerations), which is the "intuitive" answer, or does it
cut with reduced frequency (which is what I'd like!).  Promega's technical
department felt that it definitely cut at reduced frequency, but couldn't
really say why, or what the frequency was....
