| This doesn't really surprise me: reprogramming the timer on a
| multi-programming OS is something that needs a lot of support in the DOS
| emulator, since the OS cannot let you reprogram the _real_ timer.  And
| the DOS emulator of the NT family is known as one that implements only
| the bare minimum.  Programming the SVGA registers doesn't work for the
| same reason.

So, what is alternative ?
* rusage ? Does it work ?
* something else ?
