 hmm.  i haven't tried but i would suggest just using the 200 Hz timer
counter (_hz_200) and doing calculations elsewhere...  because the 200 Hz
interrupt runs at level 6 and the longer you run at levels >= 5 (6) the
easier you lose characters on serial ports. (receiver overrun...)

 just a thought :)

PS: same goes for evnt_timer, and the keyboard/mouse/midi interrupts, etc.
btw could this also be the cause for Thierrys modem1 devices problems?
i think it does a few things in etv_timer too...
