I have read by chartread about 50 difficult charts from non-linearized inkjet 
printers and thermo-sublimation prints. I've got error messages from almost all 
of it. But only 3-4 times (6-7 strips) I've got no errors in bidirectional mode 
while direction determination error have took a place. The cases was confirmed 
by manual patch-by-patch readings. The patch number in row was 12-18 in that 
error cases. Some of charts was without spacers.

It must be mentioned that preliminary profiles for targen in my error cases was 
rather far from real print (average dE~11, max dE>35). And errors haven't took 
a place while preliminary profile was quite good (max dE<10) and the chart have 
a spacers.
Another minor issue for printtarg-targen is bad bath-to-patch contrast in 
dark-green and dark-brown tones without spacers. If I have a good preliminary 
profile with max dE<5 and do the chart without spacers, the chartread (or 
eyeOne instrument) cant distinguish a transient between adjacent dark patches. 
I had to scratch the paper between the patches to get the strip reading. The 
printtarg didn't know exactly what patches transient can be read robustly by
