That would explain it then. I was just accessing the variables
directly, without any intervening calls.
It's a moot point, anyway. I put explicit calls in to the
startup, and it made no difference in the result. It's likely to
be a 32/64 bit issue somewhere that I haven't located yet. It
really shouldn't be that hard to track down. Since the output is
different from the input by a consistance amount (19 years +- a
few days) it can only be in one of 4 places, AFAIK: parsing
input, storing value, retrieving value, or generating output. My
bet is on the retrieve phase, but we'll see.
