Thanks, Danny.  I'm now testing Martin's version.

One thing I did note is that the existing ntpd software doesn't work if 
that parameter is present, but when it closes it doesn't leave a message 
in the event log saying why it has failed to initialise.  It would be help 
to have a message like "Unrecognised parameter found on command-line" or 
something like that.
