 This is interesting -- I thought I had squashed all the clock drift bugs.
 Can you tell me:
 1. Did the clock run ahead, or behind?
 2. Can you reproduce this?
 3. Did the clock _drift_, or _jump_?
 The 2200 seconds mentioned is almost exactly the 2^41 ns period of the Xen
 timecounter, so if the clock jumped it's probably safe to guess that it's
 involved somehow...
