thanks Neil,

(what is it with professional mathematicians? not only can they count, but 
they seem to be able to read too!
Stuff that no normal mortal can ever make sense off.  Gosh, I know I'm 
weird, but then again ...)

LOL (tongue-in-cheeck)

The great Motzkin himself classified - and named - a great many objects
like the ones you are studying. Take a look at his classic paper

%H A000522 T. S. Motzkin, <a href="/A000262/a000262.pdf">Sorting numbers
for cylinders and other classification numbers</a>, in Combinatorics, Proc.
Symp. Pure Math. 19, AMS, 1971, pp. 167-176. [Annotated, scanned copy]
