A search for oscillations is performed using a sample of semileptonic -hadron decays collected by the ALEPH experiment during 1991-95. Compared to previous inclusive lepton analyses, the proper time resolution and -flavour mistag rate are significantly improved. Additional sensitivity to mixing is obtained by identifying subsamples of events having a purity which is higher than the average for the whole data sample. Unbinned maximum likelihood amplitude fits are performed to derive a lower limit of at the 95% confidence limit (95% CL). Combining with the ALEPH -based analyses yields at 95% CL.
