I get the same results on all of my PAL VCSs. So far only John has
reported, that his classic VCS shows 18 sprites. His VCS JR. does
only 17 sprites too.

The 4 pixel theory seems to be right. If you look at the second version
of COLLIDE.TXT that John posted on the 14th, you can see which hits cause
which sprite combination on his classic and his JR VCS. I would suggest
that you emulate the behaviour of the JR. ;-)
