It should be fixed on 8.0-CURRENT now, after the following change: : Author: keramida (doc committer) : Date: Mon Dec 1 15:27:00 2008 : New Revision: 185519 : URL: http://svn.freebsd.org/changeset/base/185519 : : Log: : The times(3) function returns the number of CLK_TCKs since the : startup time of FreeBSD, not since the UNIX Epoch. : : PR: docs/122359 : Submitted by: Viktor Štujber : MFC after: 1 week : : Modified: : head/lib/libc/gen/times.3 It may be too late to push this into 7.1-RELEASE, but I will try to merge the change to the stable branches in a few days.
