possibly-related problem':  when transferring sysout from Dlion to dorado (or perhaps it was other way around), clock suddenly started going much faster.  CROCK and cursor flashing was several times too fast.'
is likely *not* the same problem. This would be more likely that somehow the tick/to/millisecond timers weren''t getting reset properly, and that the timers etc in the clock were not getting updated properly. Is this reproducable? Maybe we should test explicitly moving a sysout from DLion to Dorado, I don''t think anybody does that here.'
