[OR Survey] DIST Code Anomaly

When using the DIST Code in InRoads Survey, the 90 degree angle that was turned was always based upon the last segment, even if that segment was also from a DIST code.

Here is a segment of TDS Codes:

SS,OPSHA101,FP3608,AR237.530673,ZE85.251278,SD95.31124,--BLDG ST
SS,OPSHA101,FP3610,AR240.0644,ZE87.4410,SD68.84,--BLDG DIST 20
SS,OPSHA101,FP3612,AR195.3658,ZE83.2306,SD60.22,--BLDG DIST -15.2
SS,OPSHA101,FP3613,AR194.4847,ZE81.4130,SD41.98,--BLDG DIST 5.25
SS,OPSHA101,FP3615,AR99.2230,ZE87.5654,SD33.3,--BLDG DIST 1.0
SS,OPSHA101,FP3616,AR94.4027,ZE88.2610,SD37.78,--BLDG DIST 15.50

So after it draws the first two points, the DIST 20 adds a 20' segment and a 90 degree angle to the right, from that last segment. Then it draws two more points and on the second point, the DIST -15.2 draws another segment 15.2 ' long, but at a 90 degree angle to the left. So far, so good. The next shot draws another point with a segment from the end of the DIST created segment but when it tries to apply its DIST 5.25, the segment it draws is at a 90 degree angle from a "virtual" segment the current point (3613) to the last "actual" point (3612) instead of using the DIST created segment.

In this one figure, this warped output, when compared to InRoads Survey output, occurs twice. 

In this image, the Red Arrows point at the Open Roads results and the Green Arrows point at the InRoads Survey Results. The Orange Arrows show the last two actual points and the general direction of the "virtual" segment that the DIST angle is measured from.
