Hate to say it Frank, but IMO that still indicates a problem.  The allowable
voltage between neutral and ground is only a few volts (even 3 is suspect in
my book, although I don't recall offhand what the NEC says).  Remember these
wires are supposed to be tied together at the main entrance; so if you don't
have an open ground, you have a 27 volt drop in the neutral line, which is
way, way too much.
