OK, here's a fun conflict for us all.

My print Strong's actually shows that 3532 refs 3534 and 2994.  So that
module, as well as my StrongsRealGreek, are true to print Strong's.

On the other hand, NAS Greek Lexicon shows refs 3534 and 2992.

I have to suggest that real Strong's has an actual misprint error, and
that NAS has corrected this.  2992 seems clearly correct here.

What should be done with this?  Remain true to what originally appeared
in Strong's or correct it per NAS?  Perhaps correct it with a notation
of the original error?

I hardly know what to do with the difference in definitional commentary.

    "Nicolaus, a heretic"
    "Nicolaus, a Christian, probably not connected with the sect
    bearing the same name"
