Urgh - thanks for catching that - I consider any case where TaxiDraw
corrupts data to be extremely harmfull, even if it is only one foot.  I've
got a pretty good idea where this is happening.  The trouble with these
float->int rounding bugs is that they seem to be OS or compiler specific,
so I can't always reproduce them.  I'll send you a patch to test when I've
got a fix if that's OK.

Cheers - Dave
