I got a chance to reboot the machine with the original distro kernel,
without Reiser FS.  The clock problem goes away.  ntpd syncs up and stays

My next step will be to make a kernel with Reiser but with HZ reduced from
1000 to 250.  Stay tuned for further developments.

This is kernel 2.6.18 running on an Intel Core Duo, 2.4 GHz.
