Just to clarify, does Quicken 2002 or Money 2002 process the date of spin-off correctly ? As you are well aware, it does the math correctly but the date should be the original buy date instead of the spin-off date, since the IRS considers the original buy date of the parent stock, as the purchase date of the spin-off stock. The spin-off date is totally irrelevant.
