Hi Folks--

I tried a pull of ntp-dev yesterday (Friday, 17 Feb) and the
code had stability problems, specifically the frequency values
as reported by ntpdc were wandering all over. 

Reverting the code to ntpd 4.2.0a at 1.1213-o got me back to
a stable frequency value.

See the plots at:


...and look at ring, the frequency plots are at the right,
and you can see the badness from noon to around six.
