[Loadstone] No GPS time with wintec wbt300

Thanks for the log data. From this I can see the problem and fortunately 
it's an easy fix. There's nothing wrong with your receiver, it seems to be 
sending valid data so there's probably no need to replace it. The problem 
seems to be in loadstone's time checking code. It's expecting three digits 
after the decimal in the time field but your receiver is only sending two so 
loadstone thinks it's an invalid time. We don't use these digits anyway so 
this doesn't really matter. A simple tweak to the code should fix this 
Seeing what some of those other messages send is also interesting.
