deterministic content model?

I am currently trying to get my XML processor to correctly detect
non-deterministic content models - which means I have first to understand them
myself ! <g>
Is the following content model determinisic?
(a, (b|c)+, (a|b)?, (a|c)* )?
The recent posts concerning the Conformance Test suite results imply that it
_is_ deterministic (see test ibm47v01), but in my understanding, when matching
the following sequence
the second 'a' could be matched by either the ' (a|b)? ' or the ' (a|c)* '
terms. Does this not mean that the model is non-deterministic?
