I do not think the example above is valid. Eva <m> stands on its own, but the 
remaining of m-r (m minus r) is something that does not seem to appear 
anywhere. The size of the r and corresponding m fragments seem to be 
different too. The only other letter that has something similar is <g>, but 
the right fragment does not appear on its own anywhere else.

In the case I mentioned earlier (below) there is evidence of both parts 
appearing separated elsewere in the ms.
