680ms with an estimated error of the order of 10ms (I can't remember the 
default minimum distance).  0 not in 680 +/- 20.

As far as I know, SHM doesn't actually treat PPM specially, so you will 
need a minimum distance of more than 680ms setting, or you will need to 
fudge out the 680ms skew (and still possibly have to increase minimum 
distance a bit).
