I removed that theorem solving code in B20, as I recall. It was causing
random SEGVs on Windows 3.1 and occasionally it would lock up the computer
trying to calculate 7+ million digit prime numbers.
B20 had some very sophisticated DWIM code, however, which was removed in
B21 and subsequent releases since the code increased the size of the
cygwin DLL by almost 1.5K!
