Bug Description

When I hover the mouse over the time/date (near the FF/RW PLAY STOP buttons) I get:

deltaT = 01h7m.6s (67.61) [| @ -23.8946"/cy^2]

What is this? And is the 2nd half garbled?
BTW: the "delta" symbol is correct, and the ^2 indicates superscript 2

Can you show screenshot?

Sure can.. see the attached PNG file.

I don't understand, what is the deltaT difference from? What are we comparing/computing?

I didn't see the wiki. Thanks for that.
