Re^3: Challenge: 8 Letters, Most Words (top 50)by BrowserUk (Pope)

Hm. L~R: I've sat on these results for an hour now (it takes about 2 hours to run) whilst I looked for errors. I haven't seen anything obvious.
But, you should probably take them with a pinch of salt. I see the possibility for something wrong in these results, but it is too late, and takes too long to verify them tonight. I'll attempt verification tomorrow.
However, the results are interesting enough that I felt you might like to see them. The following two sets of results are from my (179k) dictionary and the (81k) 2of12int.txt. These results do allow for set of 8 letters than include duplicates, though none are in the top 50.
What is intriguing (and worrying) is that word counts are identical; but the charsets are not!
I am convinced that the top result from both datasets is "the right answer"; despite the uncomfortable feeling from the concordance of the numbers and the discordance of the charsets. Tomorrow...
