We have an Acutime 2000, which has pretty much just worked since we bought
it in 2005. We haven't felt the urge to do anything to the firmware, and
I've no idea what it's running -- whatever was current at the time.

Have you tried running the (Windows-only?) configuration tool? What does it
say about the acutime? Remember to run it on the *other* RS232 port on the
bottom-end converter box from the one you normally connect ntpd to.
Have you tried running the daemon in debugging mode, per the driver29.html
page? What does that say? We found that quite useful on the one occasion
where we had any problem with our unit.
The only occasion that I recall having any problems at all was when we
replaced the linux host with a faster machine, and we came to the
conclusion that either the serial hardware was "different" or the new box
was simply now pulsing the timestamp-me line too quickly. As a quick hack
workaround I simply duplicated the two ioctl()s in the driver which toggled
the relevant control line. It might be worth checking whether there's
anything in the code like that...
