Sorry, I've used the wrong words. I'm not aware of any such problems
with the recent ntp-dev version, and that's due to your work.
However, people (specially unexperienced users) often just run the ntpd
that has been shipped with their version of the OS, so they may
actually observe problems which in fact have been fixed months ago.
