heard back from USNO

I heard back from the US Naval Observatory.

I had sent a message to Rachel Matson. She's in charge of the Washington Double Star database. I let her know of the recently discovered issue with Groombridge 34.

She pinged me ('round midnight, huh).

Thanks for the thorough investigation!  Indeed it does look like GRB 34A = GX And, while GRB 34B = GQ And.  The relevant files have been fixed and will be reflected online after the next WDS update.

Good stuff!
