km / miles

Hi all,
on checking our 160m results, a friend (df2nv) and myself came across a strange discrepancy regarding km and miles between the database you access via the main menue and the "old" form database:
The database via main menue displays one record like this:
km
2012-01-02 01:56 DJ6LB 1.838016 -28 0 JN59mm 5 LB9YE JP54pu 1705 0
if you acces the old database it looks like this(four sets of data with df2nv & dj6lb in the middle):
km mi
2011-12-22 18:00 G8JNJ/A 1.838049 -28 0 IO90hx +37 5.012 LB9YE JP54pu 1707 1061
2012-01-02 01:56 DJ6LB 1.838016 -28 0 JN59mm +37 5.012 LB9YE JP54pu 2744 1705
2012-01-04 21:34 DF2NV 1.838189 -24 0 JN59mo +37 5.012 LB9YE JP54pu 2729 1696
2011-12-31 00:40 CT1ESQ 1.838098 -31 0 IN50re +40 10.000 DK6UG JN49cm 1673 1040

The actual distance between myself (or df2nv) and LB9YE is app. 1700km, correctly displayed in the first instance.
The "old" databes (which is the same) obviously transposes km and miles but sorts them accc. to km.
As we only discussed our results in regard to LB9YE, we can not speak for other data, but it would really be weird if it is only true for LB9YE.
