Malcolm:

People with a 5% ancestry MLE almost always have overlap with 0% in
their confidence contours? That's a good one! I have yet to see ANYONE
with as much as 25% who didn't have at least one confidence contour
(usually two or three) which overlapped with 0%. So, are these also to
be "taken with a grain of salt"?
