I agree, except that I used the old proj command instead of cs2cs, so I didn't
get any datum shift.
But I can do
> cs2cs +init=epsg:4326 +to +init=epsg:29872 -f "%.3f"
1717442.731 1516073.010 -151.645
to perform the datum shift, too. Again, this agrees pretty well with your result,
but not exactly.
By the way, the datum shift one gets from +init=epsg:29872 is the one EPSG calls
"Timbalai 1948 to WGS 84 (4)" or EPSG:1852, with accuracy 5 meters,
and Area of Use: East Malaysia - offshore South China Sea.
