No. I have to admit I've never tried PPS under Windows at all. However, 
since the piece of code to be tested is in the common ntpd code it 
should make not much of a difference whether this runs under Windows, 
Linux, or whatever.

The interesting thing would be to test other refclock drivers. If I grep 
the source code for FLAG_PPS then beside the ATOM driver (of course) and 
the parse driver which we have already tested the drivers

- wwvb
- gpsdjson
- oncore
- nmea

also provide built-in PPS support, so these could also benefit from the 
patch if they have been configured to use it.

For other configurations using the ATOM driver it would be good to have 
some results confirming that they still work as before.
