[RC5] Uptime and/or CPU time records?

I hear rumers of the '49 day' bug in Windows, when a 32 bit free running
counter with a period of 1ms ticks over back to 0. Is this a myth or does it
actually exist.
It is easy to work out the time of 49 days 17 hours 2 minutes and a few
seconds.

I got 48 days of uptime out of it once. That might be considered impressive
since it was running under Windows 95.
