I have a box here (running HEAD) that does the following:

1) The clock sometimes stops for over a minute and then jumps to the 
current time and continues. Otherwise, it works normal and those breaks 
seem to happen rather seldom.

2) sleep(1) (library function) returns after 0.1 second.

3) sleep 1 (at the shell prompt) returns after 1 second.

Sounds similar to an issue Chris Pressey reported recently (see 
 My problems, however, are without ACPI (e.g., booting with option 2 
from the loader menu).

Any ideas?
