Can you provide a bit more detail in the form of a concrete example
or two.  Suppose I stop the system (e.g. by entering a debugger) and
after poking around for sixty seconds, I restart the OS.

How long does it take for the interpolator to compensate for the
lost minute?

What is the relative rate of time while this compensation happens?

Does it make a difference if NTP is running?
