January TIPS OID adjustment listed as gain, July as loss (deflation), in plain view.

Did they net the gain and loss into a single number somewhere, or did they keep them separate? If they netted them on the 1099, you should be able just to put the net total on your Schedule B. If they didn't, that's curious and I'm not sure what the right thing to do would be - have to go back and look at the rules.
