The case Eric was considering was the local clock is 1970 and the target time 
is post 2036.  That requires the step adjustment to be more than 31 bits of 

That would work if we applied Eric's suggestion of doing the pivot way back 
when the l_fp format is extracted from the packets.  Then the arithmetic with 
the 4 time stamps will get a big offset.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
