A rule that

*can* become chaotic and possibly never stabilize, but very rarely for small soups.

Apgluxe refuses to search D2_x symmetry, getting stuck on the usual "Failed to detect periodic behaviour!", although I have yet to encounter any explosive / chaotic soups, even with larger soup sizes

A neighboring rule (B3-n56-ce78/S3i4a5-i678) keeps the 2c/10d and the c/26d, but removes the funky c/13o's, but also adds some volatile high-period oscillators:
