its also choosing flats (like Eb when it should be D#) im not up on  
all the notational rules of fomus but i would think that --barring any  
other information -- if a note appears in the keysig it should prefer  
that accidental and if its in sharp keys it should generally prefer  
sharps over naturals. so in this example you get a dimished 4th  
between Db and F# when I think it shuould just be a diatonic perfect  
fourth (C# F#).. actually none of these flats are convincing.
