core/affectanalyser.cpp: safer p-value estimation, taking into account the central region

As detected by @mikael-s in the parent commit, the region between V and J affectations
was not taken into account in the p-values, yielding erroneous segmentations
when this region was very large.

Now this region is counted *both* for the computation of left and right p-values, solving
the bug of the parent commit.

This could be sometimes over-conservative : are we counting things twice ?
In regular situations, the answer is no, as the p-values
are eventually computed by getProbabilityAtLeastOrAbove in kmerstore.h,
that takes into account the length of the seed.

A more exact option could have been to use something like
(first_pos_max + last_pos_max / 2) + getS()/2, but it would raise symmetry problems.
The selected option should anyway improve the estimation in most of the cases.

1) do we have enough affectations in good positions ('before' at the left and 'after' at the right) ?
