As discussed in our 2000 USENIX paper, lottery scheduling's currency abstraction imposes lower limits on the resource allocations that clients of a system can receive.

In this addendum to the paper, we discuss a limitation of our original solution to the lower-limits problem, and we propose an alternate solution that overcomes the shortcomings of the original solution.
