Your impression was the same as mine until I read UnitedHub.com. Hence I expect a 12/31 sweep and a 1/31-ish sweep.

I started flying in 2004, so that was my question to you as well

Maybe someone who has a spreadsheet going back that far can comment on whether or not it fed into their EQM numbers.

I would think they meant calculations AS OF 12/31/11 at some unknown date past that.
That's why this is captured as a Known Issue in the OP
