Not sure what you mean by "490 ind". But the relationship is definitly 
not 1:1, but n:1 (i.e. we're linking from a child to a parent)

I think we are using this 830$w to link not horizontally, but 
vertically, from a book up to a sort of series ("Reihe"). We're not 100% 
sure this is correct, so we copied what DNB is doing (see again these

ok, that's another way to correct the param name.

We were just not sure if using 'rcn' instead of 'control-number' was a 
bug in Koha or our MARC. It seems it is neither, so we'll use a 
workaround to "correct" the param name.
