And a few more from weekend testing, on the off-chance that any of them
are at all helpful. One interesting thing about the several messages
starting at time 4731 is that CPU 5 doesn't seem to be expiring timers,
even when new ones are posted. But at time 4891, base->clk has in fact
advanced.

Thanx, Paul
