SubjectRe: jiffies rollover, uptime etc.
Many will be grateful if this finally allows
the correct uptime to be generated after
497 days - my busy mail/dns servers now
have 611 days uptime, but to outsiders it
appears they only have 114 days uptime,
and there are bizarre items in the process
table, e.g. programs that were apparently
started in the year 2003...
