|Gamma function differences?|

Hi to all!
I was just playing with my hp-42S and my newly arrived (and fixed!) HP-11C, and I found this difference:
In the Gamma function (in HP-11C shared with factorial [n!]) I found these results:
HP-11C: n = 68.5, result = 2.056343638e97
HP-42S: n = 68.5, result = 3.0019615151e95
HP-11C: n = 67.5, result = 3.00196151e95
HP-42S: n = 67.5, result = 4.44735039275e93
HP-11C: n = 66.5, result = 4.447350392e93
Commodore SR4190: n = 68.5, result = 3.00196151995e95
Commodore SR4190: n = 67.5, result = 4.44735039501e93
I'm just curious (as I don't have the HP-11C user's manual): the argument for Gamma function in the HP-11C is added by 1 internally?
