Sorry, I had too many versions of things sitting around and looked
at the wrong one.  It was the test at the top that you might not
get past to be able to report things below:

    /* Don't expend a clock check if nothing to do */
    if ((pgStatTabList == NULL || pgStatTabList->tsa_used == 0) &&
        !have_function_stats && !force)

The function stats might have gotten you past it for the particular
cases you were testing, but the problem could be caused without
