Could it be this Charlie? Could it be that you're counting both the start and end days? I agree that the T-Bills are listed as maturing on 12/21/06, but, as you said, that means the cash actually shows in your account on 12/21, which seems to me that it means that the last day you're actually earning interest on it from the treasury is 12/20, and on 12/21, the money then belongs to your bank.

Typically (but I admit not always) the way banks work is that your balance at the end of the day is your previous days balance, plus all deposits from that day, minus all withdrawals from that day. So the money would belong to your bank on that Thursday, not the Treasury.

Theres really no way to prove it either way, but I'd bet if you asked the Treasury, that what they'd tell you.
