Hello Thomas,

This is a version compiled from the 4.8.1 git tag.

However, I just tried a freshly compiled version from git master - and  
it is as I expected - using -32.45 instead of (32.45).

I'll call this a "Never mind."  as I can easily generate the few files  
I need from the pre 5.0 version.

Sorry for the noise.
