Err... either I can't understand what you are saying or some part of the
above is factually incorrect (or maybe does not apply to my setup).

I have experimentally observed the listings produced by cross-eit causing
recordings to miss one hour (either at the start or at the end, depending
on the direction of the mistake) if the one-line fix by John was not
applied at the right time of year.
