Your crystal is probably fine.

At one point, I hacked my kernel to call the calibration routine
several times and printout the answer.  A batch of answers from
the same time (and hopefully same temperature) had the same sort
of scatter.

I'm running 2.6.23 wih a few local hacks.  2.6.19 has similar problems.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
