Hi !

I am quite new to DragonFly, but I would like to mention that I had the same problem on normal FreeBSD. Then I tracked problem to hardware that was not recognized by system. I inserted special SCC card (used for AX.25 - Netham) into my computer and clock started going very fast. This card has no driver under FreeBSD, and this caused the problem. I had the same problem on one old computer with weird chipset, time was going very fast. There I just had to set correct chipset for motherboard and everything was fine...

I hope this will help a little.


P.S.: Another comment on SCC card, it had it's own "clock" (it had some time crystals on it, I don't know how they are named in english) so maybe that was problem.
