[minervacirc] A Millennium Magick Trick I Want To Do!!!!

Greetings in circulation land.

I have discovered an odditiy in some Millennium records that I try to 
reproduce and fail.  I have come across items that have been checked 
out, have both a LCHKIN date and an IN LOC (meaning they really 
circ'd), yet have a LPATRON as 0.  If you don't believe me, please 
see list #304.  I have 452 items that have a total checkout of 
greater than zero, yet have no last patron.  

I tested whether renewing an item online deleted the last patron from 
the record, but the renewals I tested always seemed to retain the 
last patron information.

So, has anyone else come across this, and can anyone venture a guess 
as to what could possible remove the last patron information?  
Curious circulation minds want to know.
