Many thanks for that, Martin.
IIRC, there was a problem with NTP reading parameters from the
command-line when running as a service, but perhaps that was a long time
ago. I see that in the services control tool a parameter can be
specified. I also hope you remembered to reset the time resolution when
NTP closes down (although I can't actually see it being a problem if a
program forgot to do this).
I will test this on my backup PC if you wish.
Great that leap-second code is there. Only 19 days to go.....
