The question is: does removing it fix the problem?  I am at home right
now, so can't test it myself.

.55 is not a legal q-value in HTTP, so our code might not have been tested
with .55 but definitely has been tested with 0.55.  I am just trying
to determine the problem case for testing.

Wouldn't the GIF match in that case?  I think you mean the best-if-all-equal
case, which is a problem with some browsers.  Basically, it requires a
separate default algorithm based on a BrowserMatch variable, but nobody
had the time to do it for 1.2.
