Workaround found for FOTD that fails to render

description

Richard, I've discovered one reason why certain of Jim Muth's
FOTDs do not render in Fractint for Windows beta 5 -- and
a temporary workaround for this particular problem.

E.g.: Jim's original PAR file for his FOTD for Aug 5, 2013
(pasted below) has one of its parameters specified as:

/1000000000000/

The fractal renders as an all black screen with this
original parameter specification.

When I change the format of the value (not the
numerical value itself) to:

/1.0e+012/

then the fractal is rendered as expected, and appears
like the image on Jim's web page:
http://www.crosscanpuzzles.com/Aug13/080513.html

My workaround is included below as a parameter set named: Anti-Minibrot-2
