TAF choked on OS7MP, but DST3 seems to be working well for the moment.

You'll see that most schemes "work" (i.e., they are allowed to be used) but in particular OS7MP (and I think SOM) doesn't work. From my experience I recommend using linear advection schemes (which rules out all flux limited schemes) for more accurate gradients.
