    I am no longer certain that object B has overtaken object A. 
    
    I based that conclusion on an observation by another observer, relayed by a
    third party, who apparently made a significant typographical error.
    
    I do not have time to re-visit my analysis today; in the meantime, please be
    aware that the positions are accurate, but the identities may need to be
    swapped.
    
    Observers should expect the objects to be running more than 3 mi early relative
    the epoch 03343.779 elsets.
    
    As for the bug in ObsReduce, I have corrected it, and have e-mailed a
    replacement exe file to known users of the program. I hope to make it generally
    available for downloading sometime tomorrow.
