I measured both cases using IrfanView (not the most accurate tool ever, but still), and the length of the 40 mm is indeed 180 mm.

Which gets us back to the previous point - either Jane's had a typo (more likely), or a new version was developed after this one was showcased.

Another point deserves mentioning - the 180 mm version already had the pill reduced to 39 mm to allow for some case taper, I wonder how much more they would have to go down is the case was lenghtened even more...
