PRODRG produces notoriously bad parameters. Don't use those topologies directly
and expect good results.

Your description is too confusing to be able to provide useful. There's nothing
anyone can actually do to help you without actual commands, files, and real
error messages, rather than what you're filtering through your thoughts.
Sounds like you've hacked together a solution, though, so hopefully everything
matches up. But like I said above, PRODRG topologies are not reliable and
reviewers should criticize their use heavily. The problems are well known.
