Thanks for your fast and valuable comments. I increased the Artificial 
Ant timestep to 600, as you suggested, and it seems to work :). It might 
be of interest to someone in the list the results of my experiments, so 
I left them here.


ANT
---
Koza I (p202): 	Imin=450k, SR=7%
ECJ: 		Imin=666K, SR=11%
Notes: 100 runs, M=500, timestep set to 600


6-MULTIPLEXER
-------------
Koza I (p196): 	Imin=245k, SR=75%
ECJ:		Imin=427k, SR=70%
Notes: 50 runs, M=500, G=200, fitness proportionale selection used 
instead of tournament


SIMPLE REGRESSION
-----------------
Koza I (p203): 	Imin=162k, SR=34%
ECJ:		Imin=188k, SR=30%
Notes: 100 runs, M=500, ECJ default parameters


EVEN-5 PARITY
-------------
Koza I (p543): 	SR=0%
ECJ:		Imin=3.38E7, SR=4%
Notes: 50 runs, M=4000


EVEN-5 PARITY WITH ADF
----------------------
Koza I (p544):	Imin=152k, SR=5%
ECJ:		SR=0%
Notes: 100 runs, M=4000


Best regards,

David
