Eric, Frank, Glynn, Gerald, and all,

It's great to see quick action on this.  In my view, this is quite a
major bug, and it's unknown (to me) whether it affects other
projections or things that are built on top of Proj.4, like GDAL/OGR,
MapServer, etc.  It doesn't affect me directly because I use Linux,
but the colleague I'd just introduced to all these tools is getting a
bad first impression of open source geospatial software (his words).

Is there a test script already written for checking the results from
Proj.4?  If not, I will try to work up a script that tests some other
