I'm sorry if this wasn't clear ... but the problem seems to be within
the settimeofday() (or perhaps clock_settime()) function.  Once ntpd
gets "lucky" and gets the clock within 128ms, it's happy.  Right now
my TS-7200 box has been up for over a day without any time steps, and
ntptime shows a frequency of -51 ppm.
