    Oops, I indeed missed that. I searched for if anyone would change that
    value, but later forgot about the other users.
    A simple solution would be to move this (constant) value to a header and
    another rather simple solution would be to remove it completely, as it's
    rather bogus anyway. These users check time_adjust, which is unused in a
    NTP controlled system. The correct value to check would be the tick
    length, but I'm sure it's really worth the trouble.

    bye, Roman
