When a process sleeps, it relinquishes the CPU. After the
timeout, the process becomes runable in the run queue and
the process scheduler can run it in a future time slice. This
is usually 10000-20000usec later. A small usleep says let
something else run but check back with me as soon as possible.
So even though it says 50 the average delay should be more
like 15000usec.
