1NT was a normal 14+-17 and available to South over the transfer were 3H, showing a 4 card max with no strong honor concentration, or a suit bid to show a strong honor concentration with 4 trumps (2NT would've been a 3 card max). In addition, per agreement, a 4m bid over 3NT would just be a cuebid showing a max that couldn't have made any prior super acceptance.

 

North also had a way of showing a 5332 "choice of games" hand, so he cannot have that shape when he bids this way.

90%+ N
Mostly N, not bidding 3C over 2H was the problem
About equal
Mostly S, this hand is worth a 3H bid in your methods
Mostly S, not bidding 4C over 3NT was the problem
90%+ S
Other; please comment if you feel this way
