Hi, I just wanted to add a short note to my previous message.
The cases that I refer to are for a flux of 1e-14.
However, contrary to what one might think, the discrepancy does not go away for 
brighter fluxes: at least a factor of 2 is still there, probably signaling that
the conversion between flux and source rates is at least part of the problem.
For fainter fluxes the discrepancy is still there too.
I am really looking forward to hear back from you guys...
Thank you for doing this.
Take care,

    Giovanni
