and played with is such that it is hard for NS to judge if they have pushed the
tray far enough for the bids to be seen by both players at the other side of the
screen, or that the tray has been pushed far enough for the screenmate to
see all bids.  If this the tray hasn't been pushed far enough, then EW should
take some action to make sure that they can see the bids.

Then, I don't quite see how we can separate this case from the case where north
saw the 1C bid and decided to make an anti-systemic pass.
