13 seconds a day is easily within normal PC timer lossage, though (my old
486 pretty consistently loses that much time, regardless of OS). 50 seconds
in 12 hours is more worrisome, especially when it doesn't happen in OS/2....
I should mention that I stopped running RC5 after the last DES-II challenge;
I'm holding out for SETI@Home, and soaking up CPU cycles with GNOME
"tinderbox" arrangements on a few machines :-) (but only one Linux box out
of all the ones that have time slippages).
