Discrepancies between Prediction Programs?

I noticed something strange tonight...

I was running Satscape version 8.2.17 beta and Orbitron 3.17 and I was
getting two *VERY* different locations for AO-51. I had updated the keps for
both programs tonight.

Time: 03:22:19 UTC Saturday 1 March 2008 (Shown on both programs)

AO-51 Location (Satscape 8.2.17 beta):
Latitude: 007.7664 South
Longitude: 117.0110 West

Orbitron 3.17:
Latitude: 69.5008 East
Longitude: 42.5000 North
