I used a little BUG-Lite AIC to solve this one. Note that the only way to avoid the 57-79-95 BUG-Lite deadly pattern in r147c46 is for either the 5 in row 4 to escape to r4c5, or for the 9 in row 7 to escape to r7c9. Extending that by a bivalue cell, we get...

(5)r4c5 = (59-57-79 BUG-Lite)r147c46 = (9)r7c9 - (9=5)r8c7 => r8c5 <> 5

...and the puzzle is cracked.
