My thanks to you and to one other individual who have
written responses to my questions. Both have suggested the same
possibility that this is a UUID and not the data I am actually
I will talk to the people who extracted the file and see
if there is a possibility we got the wrong data in that field.
One would hope that the time stamp data are normal 32-bit values
that can be sucked in by a %lx in sscanf.
