I meant to reply sooner or later... it doesn't seem right to me to load
the entire DOS subsystem for reading out the timer. Direct port access is
probably not allowed for win32 apps under NT anyway? Perhaps there should
be a fallback there for when the DOS subsystem is not loaded? Then again,
I'm not sure how it's supposed to work... it probably can't hook the timer
interrupt or set the timer rate or anything without upsetting the OS?
