Really nice one, thx for the link!

Also thx to everyone thinking about a solution.

A good idea might be to find someone who would program GPS/PPS support 
for chrony. Many people would benefit from it. We also have a good 
programmer working with us and he is already looking into things..

I also have to further investigate the sudden change of behaviour I 
experienced and if I found the reason I will have to try to start the 
machine in a very cold room, on the heating and so on.. If it would 
settle down within 15 Minutes, we could live with it...
