I needed to reboot my Windows XP Pro PC the other day, and I now note that 
after restart, the ntp.drift file contained 9 bytes of zero, and there was 
an ntp.drift.TEMP file containing "-17.757", which is about the expected 
value.  Any idea what might cause ntp to use an alternate drift file, and 
will it save the correct drift value across the next restart?

This is with the Meinberg V4.2.0b at 1.1436 build.
