The problem is not unique. There are many such instances in all data files,
where a rule name appears to be a time offset.
My theory: probably a relic from a conversion process trying to convert
space (runs) into tabs. In several cases a tab didn't get in so a space
remained and in other cases an empty field was deleted.
