What ratio GC/AT should we expect from a mutating genome ?

As the good doctor said, we can't formulate any expectations, really. Not without knowing more about mutation and repair than we currently know. Note, for example, that a highly active family of transposons in a particular species will introduce lots of new sequence into the genome, pushing the GC content toward whatever the transposon happens to have.

The last time I checked, yes, I was.
