There was recently discussion about how much we can rely on what Sethra
says.  I have been poking around in _tPotD_ recently and note that in
Chapter 19 she gives a rather different account of the Orb's survival
than we saw in _FHYA_.  In this account, which StY finds a bit hard
to swallow (leading to some Yendish evasiveness from Sethra), the Orb
skipped out on its own.  Note both accounts come through Paarfi, of
course.  Maybe Sethra doesn't want to make it public how powerful she
is - one wonders why the SiG doesn't ask how Sethra skipped out herself...

No conclusions, just something to ponder.
