Is the problem that they don't get an almanac, or that they get the wrong 

There was a week rollover in one of the main GPS fields several/many years 
ago.  That ws the first one since GPS started.  It made some units give crazy 
answers.  (I think they were time only, position was OK.)

I think you could get around that with some post-processing.  I don't 
remember anybody doing that.  Some units got new firmware.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
