MiNTLib should be fixed ASAP. Finding out about this thing month ago
pissed me off to no limit because I hadn't earlier known why so many
unix programs I have tried compiled were unusably slow (and thus got
deleted after some head scratching)... 5ms resolution would be well

Juergen got now PC+BSD and I haven't heard about knarf for long time,
so who would fix this so that other people won't fall this? (and I
myself would rather use a working library than kludge fully functional
(others') programs too!)
