  The timing function in OS/2 is "rolling over" and we're looking into
another function that won't. It doesn't effect the key you work on, just
the reported time it took to crunch it.

  Yah it happens to me occationally, don't worry about it, the important
thing is that the key is calculated correctly. :)
