bug#14778: 24.3; Woman elapsed time calculation fails.

Glen:

Thanks for the quick follow-up.  I researched this further and discovered that 
the ancient bison-mode.el 
(http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/gnu/emacs-lisp/incoming/bison-mode.el) that I use 
includes make-regexp.el and that defines its own time-since function.  The 
time-date.el time-since delivered with 24.3 is correct.  When I rename the 
make-regexp.el version woman works as advertised.  Please accept my apologies 
for wasting your time.

Adam

I cannot reproduce this. Does it happen with emacs -Q?

Not for me it doesn't. What does the following return for you:

(time-since before-init-time)

For me it returns eg

(0 123 804775 342000)

What does

C-h f time-since

say?
