	I can't find the original message now.

	First question is - where is the dart problem located? Do you have 
the URL for the problem?

	Second, the part 0 represents the default part for any problem. If 
you have a multi-part problem and it doesn't have a setting for that 
particular part, it will use the default.

	When setting at the course or map level, it sets part 0 
parameters, for example, part 0 weight. This should handle all parts 
unless they have been explicitly set. This has been working fine for us 
with plenty of multi-part problems (using stable 5.1)

	You do need to be careful with parts - if you set a weight for
part 15 'for this map' under resource level setting, then the parameter
will also take hold for other part 15s in the map. It needs to be set 
under 'for this resource in this map' (I can't remember the exact heading) 
to apply only to that specific instance of the problem.
