Hmmm.  I am using the last windows dev version from Terje and that
behaves normally without any maxpoll fiddles:
Refclocks (in my case: LCL and NMEA) stay at 64 secs
Servers and peers go up to 1024 secs

None of my machines (including 486 running w2k) have a problem
maintaining good accuracy polling servers at 1024 secs intervals.

[aside] would it not be useful to allow iburst with refclocks - it
doesn't seem to do anything here...
