Default Problem with hybrid assebly with Celera Assembly

Hello, everyone,

Celera Assembler(CA) 6.1 can do hybrid assembly now.

I have 3 types of reads, Solexa (100bp read length, 500bp insert length), Sanger and 454. The species is a fungi(~40M). I want to assemble them using CA.

At the beginning, I combined 454 and Sanger data and assembled them using CA. I'm somewhat satisfied with its performance. There are ~38M in scaffolds.

However, I combined all three types of data and then did assembly as well. The result was so bad that only 1M in contigs and scaffolds. why?

Here is my spec file:
# -------------------------------------

utgErrorLimit=2.5 # Allow mismatches over and above the utgErrorRate. This helps with Illumina reads.

merSize = 22
unitigger = bog
utgBubblePopping = 1

# MERYL calculates K-mer seeds
merylMemory = 64000
merylThreads = 20

# OVERLAPPER calculates overlaps
ovlMemory = 4GB
ovlThreads = 20

# OVERLAP STORE build the database
ovlStoreMemory = 8192 # Mbp

# ERROR CORRECTION applied to overlaps
frgCorrThreads = 10
frgCorrConcurrency = 3

ovlCorrBatchSize = 1000000
ovlCorrConcurrency = 10

# CONSENSUS configuration
cnsConcurrency = 10


# -------------------------------------

Could someone help me with this problem?
I would appreciate any help.
