[gembud] METAR "Available Times" listing in GARP


When using GARP to plot "Surface Observational Data", I am seeing garbled
date/timestamps in the listing of "Available Times".  In a previous version of
GARP, I would see something like the following for the data listings
for a given hour:


Now, I am seeing the following:


I am able to plot the data just fine for the timestamp
"20120611/2000", but not for
the two garbled timestamps.

For the record, I am able to plot all three data groups in NMAP2
(2000, 2020, 2040 UTC).
This would suggest that it is not a gempak decoder issue, but a GARP
issue.  While I know
that GARP is no longer supported, I still like using the program given
its ability to plot
cross sections of model data.....

Any suggestions would be appreciated....
