This bug is present in release 0.7.3.

Steps to reproduce this bug

Carry out a Blocks or Koch exercise. Make sure you copy the symbols correctly onto paper or into a file before entering them at Aldo's prompt. Enter everything correctly, except for the last symbol group, for which type just the first symbol and then press Enter.


Please input the signs you copied.
If you didn't copy a sign, put '@'.
 1: eii
 2: iei
 3: iii
 4: eie
 5: i
  1:...  2:...  3:...  4:...  5:.!!
    eii    iei    iii    eie    iei
    eii    iei    iii    eie    i@@

Expected result

The "Success rate per symbol" statistics shows the correct number and percentage of success even for the symbols that were omitted from the last symbol group.

Example (same as above):

Success rate per symbol:
percentage%-'symbol'-(copied correctly/keyed)

Obtained result

Symbols that were omitted in the last group also lose the count of all correctly copied occurrences.

Example (same as above):

Success rate per symbol:
percentage%-'symbol'-(copied correctly/keyed)


It's true that the instructions ask for '@' to be input for symbols that were missed (instead of omitting them if they are at the end of the group), but I don't think the user should be penalized for not complying. :-)
