is a interim release of Abacus that only includes

The before/after test case is as follows:

1. Go to the custom abacus toolbar by hitting the Gear icon
2. Create an abacus with 3 beads on the top and 10 beads on the bottom
3. Slide several sets of beads up from the bottom row and down from the top row
4. Create an abacus with 1 bead on the top and 1 bead on the bottom
5. Observe if some beads are misplaced off the top and bottom of the
new custom abacus
