Yes, it's that jitter however there's a minimum computed value below 
which it never goes (varies per system).  On my system it used to be 
computed at 0.061 (and all the configured clocks would report that as an 
initial jitter until some data came in).  On the same system with 4.2.7 
the value is now computed to be 0.122.

In any case apparently according to David Hart the code has indeed 
changed so the computations are different.
