Yeah, I distinctly remember doing that but clearly something got lost.
Sorry.

Anyways, that change shouldn't have been part of that patch, but
something has to change there for the "Only clone bio vecs that are in

Gonna take a stab at reworking that code, it really ought to be possible
to just replace it with my bio splitting code but the way dm is doing
the splitting is... confusing.
