the original import didn't do any expansion.
there were two bots run for expansion, one west of the mississippi and
a much later one east of the mississippi. there were a lot of constraints
on the expansion bots because there is a lot of potential for screwing
things up. it looks like  you've found a case that the expansion bots didn't
handle. i wouldn't consider this an error, but a natural consequence
of conservatism in bot design.

expansion bots are pretty hard to get right. the second bot was Serge W's
and there was a lot of discussion and code review before he finally let it
