Also, the last time you posted this, I already said that if you'd use
the faults data to do grouping you'd get similar reseults. Task weight
is a completely unrelated and random measure. I think you even conceded
this.

So I really don't get why you're still using task weight for this.

Also, Ingo already showed that you can get task grouping from the fault
information itself, no need to use mm information to do this.
