The code is basiclly a port of the working V1 assembly code converted
to C.  I seem to remember that the V1 code did exactly what you are
talking about.  Perhaps I goofed up a flag polarity or some other core
piece of info while doing it.

I'll whip up a patch today when I get to work and post it up for
anyone interested to look at.  Perhaps a fresh set of eyes will catch
the issue.

I'll need a place to upload to.  Or I guess you can commit to CVS.
Didn't someone mention that they were going to provide space for stuff
like this?
