Dear Martin,

Thank you very much for reporting this. You are definitely right, and the
patch you propose allows to solve this issue that was causing some
erroneous diversity values for populations with multiple non-dominated

This has been corrected and this is now available in the current branch of
the Paradiseo Git repository.

Best wishes,
Arnaud Liefooghe, on behalf of the Paradiseo developers
