We show that the spontaneous breaking of center symmetry can be avoided on a L 2 × 1 2 lattice with the appropriate choice of twisted boundary conditions. In order for this to work it is crucial that the twisted boundary conditions are chosen in the reduced plane. This suggests that the choice of twist tensor can influence the directions in which color and space degrees of freedom become indistinguishable. We also present some preliminary quantitative data comparing the value of the plaquette for different forms of reduction.
