Conversion error : esriNauticalMiles converts to 1853 meters

hi everyone

Using the ArcObject/C++ it seems as if IUnitConverter converts 1 esriNauticalMiles to 1853 meters. The international NM is 1852. However the imperial NM is 1853.

Googling around it seems as if most references in ESRI context pertains to the Intl. NM, but I nevertheless get 1853.

Anyone else know anything about this ?
