[UDUNITS #BCV-688489]: "hours ref xxxxx" type of units no longer allowed?


Thanks for sending this in. Special thanks for pointing out where the problem 

Yeah, the parsing of offset time units has always been a problem. 
Unfortunately, the unit-tests didn't cover the use of "ref" is such a 

They do now.

I've modified the code to accept "ref" in an offset time-unit. If the change 
passes all the testing, then it'll be out very soon as a new version.
