Oops! That patch is wrong. The +1 should be applied to the initial interval _only_. We KNOW when the repeating intervals start (i.e. at the jiffie edge) and don't need to adjust them. The patch, however, incorrectly, rolls them all into one. The attach patch should fix the problem. Warnning, it compiles and boots, but I have not tested it.

Yes, this seems to be the Right Thing :)
