God grief. I followed the implementation in Ingrid Daubechies' and Wim
Sweldens' original wavelet lifting paper  (J. Fourier Anal. Appl., 4:
247-269, 1998). If you look at the factorized polyphase matrix for D4
(which gives the inverse transform), their implementation of the
lifting steps the original paper is incorrect. That is scary.

A free PDF or PS of the paper is available here:


Thanks a lot!
