Ah yes.. even an obvious egregious screwup in the time or distance 
measurement still wouldn't account for the relatively huge difference 
that's been observed.

I don't know about experimental error (in the sense of measurement 
uncertainty)..


I'd go for some unexpected systematic error or factor unaccounted for. 
(naturally, that "unaccounted for factor" might be that neutrinos don't 
happen to follow gen'l relativity)
