Because of the irregular flashing, I wouldn't think that the leftover 
piece in the middle is necessarily indicative of a synodic anomaly.

The measured intervals show at least as much scatter as the .8s accuracy I 
estimated on 960606 would suggest.  Also, no asymmetry as on 960605:

Nissen's First Law of Psychology: 
The human reaction to any error, mistake or misfortune is immediately to 
take some action, intended to be remedial, which has as its first 
consequence the compounding of the original error, mistake or misfortune.
