Interactions related to A-B phases exist between fluxons with Φ = αΦ0, α ≠ integer when the fluxons are actually immersed in a region with non-vanishing mobile charge density. In particular, for the interesting case of α = 1/2 we find that this force is attractive. We briefly comment on the prospects of observing such forces.
