I know.  As it turns out, I solved my own problem.  I remembered, just
as you reminded me, that the one that came with ACES was for VMS.  Then
I looked at how I had rewritten it and discovered that I had mistaken
DURATION for a float when it was really a fixed type, plus 1000000.0 is
outside its range.  Once I fixed these flaws, I got it to work.
