As time goes on, I grow more disillusioned with quantum field theory.

comment How do I tell pattern searcher the order in which to search for patterns given in general form?
The bonus is pretty easy to understand; I guess I didn't do a good job explaining it in my question. Basically, the elements of nonCommute can be thought to be arranged in a ring (instead of in a line). Then, the distance between repeated elements x_ is shorter of the two sequences around the ring. e.g. in nonCommute[a,b,c,a,d] the rule should trigger on {d} and not {b,c,a}. Get it?

This is exactly what I need. For some reason, Bill, when I run your examples on my machine (Mathematica 9.0.1), I get the expected result {} for all of them.

This is even better than my answer! Thanks

@belisarius I posted an answer based on your comment. Would you suggest which is better (meaning faster)? Plus @@ or Total @ ?
