#include <hallo.h>

I updated to 2.4.19 the day after it was released. Since then i have a
heavy clock-drift problem.

Some time there is no clock drift, other times there is heavy clock drift.

e.g. When i load a page with mozilla. The "rotating thing" spins
randomly fast/normal.
Or when i play a movie with "xine". Every few seconds the playing gets
faster and then back to normal.

With 2.4.9 the clock was "rock solid" for weeks.

A bit strange is that it seems to depend on load. Higher load seems to
cause less/none clock drift.
(e.g. when i compile something in background, the "rotating thing" in
mozilla doesn't spin to fast)

Hardware is a Dual-PIII-933Mhz. Kernel is configured as SMP.
Any more details needed?

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
