Keith - now that was an interesting problem.  Since you've found the
source of your problem this may be moot but I would definitely second
Jive's suggestion to consider using a neural network for this problem
- I suspect you would find it works pretty well.  As someone who was
trained in classical Newtonian mechanics, I'm reluctant to admit it
but these adaptive techniques (including genetic algorithms) seem to
work pretty well.
