I think you should experiment with method B and different values for the Radius. Though, I suspect this can only minimize the problem. I would appreciate if you upload the stack to our server (as described at http://www.heliconsoft.com/ftp-server/). We will check if we can adapt algorithm to deal particularly with flares.

Hello Alexey,

Thanks for the stack. I found that bigger radius and method B produces best results. I've also found that our new version which is not yet published, which has RAW development settings, produces such source images that give much better results. So I would recommend you to wait about a week and take another try with your stack.
