Looks like the issue was that dividends provided by Yahoo are
back-adjusted for splits. I knew this (see TTR::getYahooData), but
that knowledge didn't find its way into adjustOHLC (until now).
I've updated adjustOHLC on R-Forge (r583) to un-adjust the dividends
before calculating the total adjustment ratio. Please advise if you
(or anyone) notice any issues.
