I'm pretty sure you are identifying things (and you even corrected the  
sign on one of the dimensions I had that was backwards), but things  
don't end up in the correct ordering. It's probably obvious to you if  
you check this against an image that you've turned right-side up (in a  
manner of speaking) with another tool.

Let me know when you're ready for me to have another look, or if you'd  
like a patch from me or whatever.
