      Hi Howard,
      thanks for your report. There are a few problems. Fruition-consciousness is
      vipaakacitta and it does not eradicate any defilement. Ven. Bhikkhu says
      doubt and self view are uprooted later on, but only magga-citta eradicates.
      This is strange, because there are no other maggacirras arising before
