The problem is still there.  We are hoping that with Dave's latest
PPS/PPSAPI reorganization it will be easy for Frank or somebody to get
the parse refclocks working again.

I'm not sure and I am still working toward starting the 4.2.6 RC cycle
within the next week.  It will happen as soon as I get the OK from Dave
