    I don't have the machine on which I reported.
    I re-tested on several machines:
    1.6L		MMX		doesn't reproduce
    2.1_STABLE	Pentium III	doesn't reproduce
    2.1_STABLE	Pentium 4	doesn't reproduce
    3.0_STABLE	Opteron		doesn't reproduce
    3.1_RC2		Athlon		reproduces (*)
    % nice -20 ./a.out
    1159078473 685368 < 1159078474 685368
    1159078475 16326 < 1159078476 16326
    1159078476 703156 < 1159078477 703156
    This seems different sort of botch from the one in the PR, though.
    How does it work on your machines?
 works fine on p4-m, g4/733 and ultrasparc/440.  i am wondering
 if the above system would be OK with timecounters?
