Yes, they changed the format again.  It seems to only affect the
15 and 18Z bulletins, but it causes the program to bomb as it is
searching through the times.

Unfortunately, everyone is at the AMS this week (including the NWS
contacts) so I'm not sure what I can do to fix the problem.  I'll
look at how to make it keep searching instead of bombing out so
at least you can get the other front times in the file.  If I get something
that works, I'll send a note to you and put it out on ftp.
