One should identify the smaller generating sublist, that is not valid if the list is equal to the entire sublist. I mean if one has { 3 3 3 4} one could claim that the generating sublist is {3 3 3 4} and that's not interesting.

I will fix the main post as soon as I am with a computer.

Also, another comment on #14 -- are you sure you want to be using lists of size 100 or more (for the input) and requiring the output be an integer? If the list size is 100 or more, it may be better to return the result as a list of digits (again due to overflow). Limiting the integers to a max value of 9 only addresses one of the overflow issues. The other issue is from a large list with 0 being approximately close toward either end of the list.
