Please note that there are quite a few broken timecounters out there,
a lot of them break when HZ != 100. I encountered this with a newer
revision of the dell 1550, the old revision was fine in this respect
oddly enough. These problems do however show up quickly when running
ntpd which will complain about a borked system clock every 10 minutes
or so.

Make sure that your hardware is good before blaming software :).
