Hinsch, Reese, and Frey Reply: We have carefully reviewed our simulation algorithm and found that the original implementation featured a bias on the passive part that favored moves to the right by a small fraction of order N-1. Repeating the simulations with the corrected algorithm, we have now obtained density profiles in good agreement with the simulations by Jiang et al.. In particular, our revised simulations also indicate that the mean field phase diagram, calculated by our analytical approach , seems to be exact.
