Could you provide more information on how to reproduce that?  I did a
quick check with contrib/ and never saw numeric times show up,
including after patching it to include the NEWSTYLE option.

What you want is 'mode'.  The 'status' item is only optionally present,
and only serves to indicate whether DGPS was used.
