First, thanks to Tom for taking a look at these files.

Personally, I didn't think it was any of the the above either. The PicDiv
trace showed no such glitches, so I was fairly confident that the TICC was
working well. But just to verify that, I connected the LTE-Lite PPS to the
5370A and let it run for a few hours. The 5370A captures similar
glitches. I have sent the file on to Tom.
For entertainment value, I have attached the current Lady Heather
screenshot for the LTE-Lite. It has little relationship to the .tim files
I sent to Tom since I generated those a few weeks ago. FWIW, it shows an
off by two error writing some text, for example: "PDTDT". This seems to
happen if you go to some other screen (I think it was help in this case)
