I'm putting this hand in this format instead of a bidding problem because I'm interested in an answer to the ethical question more than the "what would you bid if you can ethically".

1C=Precision (16+)

1S=5+ spades, 8+HCP

2S=trump asking bid

3C=five spades, one of top three honors

3D=control asking bid in diamonds

3NT=second round control (K or singleton) in diamonds

4C=control asking bid in clubs

4D=no first or second round control of clubs

4H=control asking bid in hearts

XX=...Your memory of the partnership agreement regarding redouble is that you are showing first round control of hearts.  However, when partner is asked for an explanation, his response is "no first or second round control"

Given partner's mistaken explanation, are you done over 4S, or do you feel you are ethically able to make another call?

 

 

I'm done.
Partner made three control asking bids, with hearts last. He CAN'T have a hand that doesn't give a play for slam opposite my hand, mistaken explanation on his part or not.
