At the very least I'll toss an inverter in there and see if the pulse is 
just upside down.  The timing I did quickly by eye and stopwatch (I have 
an LED attached to the PPS pin) but I don't remember if I had to wire 
the LED to V+ or ground to have it stay off for most of the time.  If 
it's wired to V+ then the pulse is inverted and have to try the inverter.

If that doesn't work then I've run out of possibilities other than very 
broken code somewhere.  I still don't understand why the debugging code 
pps-api supplied in ntpd's own sources can find this pulse via the 
kernel but ntpd can't.
