There are two bars missing in the Trio II to the Minuet. These bars fall between pages 22 and 23. The first clarinet G on page 23 belongs in the first of these bars. These bars are bars 99, 100 on page 19 or the Feldmahler complete score on this page. Also, at the conclusion of the Minuet, both endings contain three beats. Rather obviously, the last beat must be omitted when going to Trio II and at the last iteration of the Minuet.

The autograph score was already lost by 1800, even before the work was first published. It was published in ca.1802 by Artaria (plate 1536) and by Johann André (plate 1602) - it is not presently clear which published the work first (intriguing, since according to NMA they are not simply the same edition co-published.)
(André then published a piano arrangement of the variations finale, released by November 1803 (briefly reviewed in the Nov. 1803 AMZ, p.112.))
