Thanks! I had looked at bug tracker before posting, but also seemingly
before the report of bug 525. If it's this one.

I see in bug 527 that the problem is more important than just sysstats.
Anyway I'll follow the events there to see if I can help.

While at it, I never succeeded initiating a "peer server iburst autokey"
association. I created a fresh trusted cert and id files on client,
"ntp-keygen -T -I -G -V5 -q one_pw_4_both -p one_pw_4_both", then copied
the full (not -e) IFF parms file from client to server, and the full IFF
from server to client. Restart service, and got some negociation failing
with lots of (Eventlog to Syslog) logs like:

| Nov 14 12:49:50 client NTP: N/A: sendto( (fd=216): Une opération d'entrée/sortie avec chevauchement est en cours d'exécution.

Or repeated many times:

| Nov 14 12:49:57 client NTP: N/A: sendto( (fd=216): No error

And the association gets "reachable" only first poll, and never again,
while "ntpdc -c listpeers server" never shows the sym_passive incoming.
I'm wondering if I'm doing "peer autokey" correctly?
