Well, I moved the hyper-active 2.4-based disk to yet another 4801, and wadda ya
know - it keeps perfect time!
Out of a lot of maybe a dozen boxes, we appear to only have a couple with
working RTCs - the rest run fast. I haven't narrowed it down further - some of
them run the 1.26 comBIOS, others are up to 1.28. So it may yet be a a BIOS bug
- I'll have to do more analysis. Apart from that, it might be a set of bad
components on the board. Maybe some counterfeit components slipped into the
pipeline somewhere - who knows?
At least I've got a working one now...
