omshell "starts", "ends"

The man page for omshell says that both starts and ends are in hex and 
should represent the start and end time of the lease.

I tried converting  the number to decimal and then to a date... it 
wasn't even close.

ends = 03:e2:56:46
starts = "C9VF"

$ ./ 03:e2:56:46
Converting 03e25646...
dec = 65164870

Also, "starts" is not in hex. What is it?
