In this paper, we provide an O(n log(2) n log log n log* n) algorithm to compute 
a duplication history of a string under no-breakpoint-reuse condition. The
motivation of this problem stems from computational biology, in particular, from 
analysis of complex gene clusters. The problem is also related to computing edit 
distance with block operations, but, in our scenario, the start of the history is
not fixed, but chosen to minimize the distance measure.
