augmentative marking on %mor line

Dear Janet,
    To trace through a complete morphological analysis, you would need to enter the word with mor +xi and then read the debug.txt file.  All the information is there, but there is way too much information unless you really need to debug something.  To what level of depth are you interested in understanding this?  Perhaps you could just take a look at the diminutives in 0affix.cut and a few of the diminutive and augmenative ar and cr rules.  
    In the case of #3, however, you don't need to go through any of this, since there is just a mistake. The lemma should be "rata" not "rato".  I fixed that.  I see that I had also just hard-wired ratoncito into n.cut and used rato as the stem.  I changed that to "rata' too.  A new version of SPA is on the web.
