Scott,

Thanks for the info.

I can't afford to lose balls. Do you recall which were the offending 
cards? There were only 3 that would be candidates: First, and the 
last two cards, the seventh and eighth.

(I let it run for several minutes and no ball went over the wall, but 
I did note tracings that penetrated the barrier at the bottom, that 
is, the horizontal line a distance R  (the radius of the ball) above 
the bottom of the window. Hard to reproduce these some-times 
occurrences.)

Jim
