from eWOT:\books\acos\ch20.html
"The Watcher feels the prickling of saidar end and smiles crookedly. He decides not to kill the seven women1 at the clearing, then rips a hole with the True Power and steps outside the Pattern."
The difference is in the folding of the pattern so that there is no distance between the origin and destination before the hole is "bored."
