Good idea. Forgot all about electric fence. I believe it does work on
the Alpha (tested it ages ago and it worked ok then). I haven't gotten to
look at the code yet, but that sounds about right, since it's pretty
common from my experience for matrices to be larger than I had figured
them to be (with padding, etc).
