pombe genefinder parameters

Can anybody point me to a parameter set that is useful for the
genefinder program built into Pombase/AceDB ?
The default parameters either are not good or I make a stupid error:
No matter what I do, the genefinder always wants to make one gene
containing lots of introns of the whole DNA fragment, even of the
whole cosmids. If I restrict the range, the program always tries to
make one gene covering the total range. I would have thought that
the program is able to stop with a gene if the introns are getting
too long.
Another annoying thing: if there are long, uninterrupted ORFs which
I know to contain no introns, the genefinder program always forces
some mini-introns into the ORFs.
I tried to modify the parameters, but did not get any decent results.

Many thanks in advance,
