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.

Example:

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)
 80%-'e'-(4/5)
 90%-'i'-(9/10)

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)
  0%-'e'-(0/5)
  0%-'i'-(0/10)

Discussion
----------

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. :-)
