This puzzles me. It seems to me, that I do get the same results with the
braces and without. I'm including the modifications that I've
tested (note the commented/uncommented lines: I switched them several
times each with 2-3 passes). Plus, a 2nd page.

Perhaps, another yet arbiter to help out this puzzle :)

Good night, for now.
