[nos-bbs] Potential Timer Issue in JNOS

Hi Maiko,
I just happened to notice that msclock(), defined in unix.c returns an 
'int32'.  msclock() computes the number of milliseconds since JNOS was started, 
right?    When that value rolls over, after ~24 days- could that cause what we 
are seeing??

Sure hope it turns out to be that simple :-)

Evening to all,

I'm working on it. I want it fixed too ...

Unfortunately it's not just a matter of setting the linux
clock ahead by 24 days and voila - problem surfaces. It's
a bit more complicated than that.
