    I've tried this on two Dual P2 machines I own (with different
    motherboards and CPUs) and could not reproduce it. One was running 2.2.5
    and the other 2.2.6, sleep 10 took exactly 10 seconds (timed by an wall
    clock), however I have a time synchronization daemon installed and

    It sounds like you may have some clock drift problems. Install ntpd from and try it again. It should correct any
    timer drift you have on your machine. Also ensure that you have RTC
    support in your kernel compiled in.
