Approximately 87.4% of this record's speeds were below the speed sensor's
threshold (1.6 cm/sec) and are carried as zero. In addition, the record (as
we found it) contained a number of speed wrap-arounds, which we have fixed.
A speed wrap-around occurs when the current is high enough to push the
speed sensor's rotation counter beyond its maximum (1023) to 1024 or higher.
1024 registers as 0, 1025 as 1, and so forth.
