Yes, that is correct.

Furthermore, aside from the issue of the "upgrades of certainties-scores"
of the various entries, there were --if I recall correctly-- 1440
"entries" in the aparatus to the UBS3. In the UBS4 some were dropped and
some were added, but the net number stayed approximately the same.

The text of the commentary based on the UBS4 was changed to reflect those

BTW, nobody ever answered the original question; i.e. was the apparent
"typo" in the commentary for the 3rd Ed "corrected" in the commetary for
the 4th edition.

I would be glad to look this up, but --sadly-- my copies of the relevant
books are _still_ in storage. (Sigh... someday... someday...)
