Hey Jack,

Thanks for this analysis.  I've finally had some opportunity to delve
into it, but unfortunately I haven't been able to reproduce the problem!

I've created 2-minute long tracks at various bpm (60, 115, 120),
exported to MIDI as well as AIFF at both 44.1 and 48.0 Khz, and pulled
them in to Nuendo, and... they all seem to line up perfectly.

Can you send me off-list a Doggiebox song file, along with the exact
export specifications that seem to exhibit this?

Several users have also reported similar problems where the files seem
not to save in one location or with one name, but then do in another. 
So far I have not been able to identify a common set of circumstances,
but I will continue to see if I can figure this out -- as you might
guess, I haven't experienced the problem yet myself in casual use.
