I perform tracking simulations to fit various measurements of the polarization for a stored uncooled polarized deuteron beam, published in the recent paper by Benati et. al (P. Benati {\em et al.}, {\it Phys. Rev. ST Accel. Beams} {\bf 15}, 124202 (2012)). The collaboration kindly sent me datafiles of the polarization measurements, and also pertinent details of the experimental data acquisition procedure. The latter are essential to obtain quantitative fits to the data. I describe my findings and inferences from the data. In some cases I offer alternative interpretations of the data from that given by Benati et. al. I also correct some mistakes in my recent paper (S. R. Mane, {\em Nucl. Inst. Meth.} {\bf 726} 104--112 (2013)).
