Is PerfectTunes checking a different AccurateRip database than CD Ripper is checking?

In some cases I get different behaviours from PerfectTunes and CD Ripper.

1) Today I used PerfectTunes to check some old CD rips done in iTunes several years ago, and it reported "Track not Present in AccurateRip".
2) Today I also re-ripped the exact same CD using CD Ripper, and it reported the same tracks are in the AccurateRip database.

It looks like CD Ripper and PerfectTunes are checking different (aspects of / versions of) the AR database.

They both use the same database, however the AccurateRip disc ID includes the lead in time of the disc, this is lost when ripping to files, so it is either guessed (as most discs start at 150), or it is looked up, but our lookup only has 50% of the 2 million discs in AccurateRip, so there will be discs which cannot be looked up currently with Perfecttunes if there is the lead in missing.
