If there is a difference of some tens to around one hundred meters and
everything else (such as the command line instruction) seems to be ok, then
there are two usual suspects:
* The rotation model is wrong - coordinate frame vs. position vector; try
changing the signs.
* The units of the rotation angles are wrong - microradians vs. arcseconds.
