We definitely need to improve calibration quality.

The question is - why does fast-calibration fail 10-20% of the
time on your test-system? Also, why exactly do we miscalibrate?
Could you please have a look at that?

One theory would be that the PIT readout is unreliable. Windows
does not make use of it, so it's not the most tested aspect of
the PIT. Is that what happens on your box?
