Thanks for pointing that out.  I am two hours ahead of UTC, but the
error was in fact that I put the end time (two hours) in the headers.
I forgot that gmtime in C uses a statically allocated struct, so it
overwrites the previous result when it's called again.  I've replaced
the sac file with a correct one.

I just did.  It did not run at all on my regular AMD64 pc, but it
seems to run on my older Pentium pc, though as with AmaSeis there are
some refresh problems, probably due to shortcomings of Wine (I run
Linux, and I haven't done any upgrades for many years on the Pentium).
Also, things are pretty sluggish, since I have to run the program

Does WinQuake have any major advantages over AmaSeis?  Since WinQuake
isn't free, I'm a bit reluctant to use it in Linux which apparently
isn't glitch free and probably not supported.
