debugging my fractal exploration bot

added lots of fprintf

found (one of) the (s) in my code:

`sort -n` ("string numerical value") does not properly by :
1.1e2
1.1e-2
1.1
sorts as
1.1
1.1e-2
1.1e2
instead of what I want
1.1e-2
1.1
1.1e2

GNU `sort -g` ("general numerical value") seems more promising on first glance, need to test more thoroughly...
