I took a quick glance at the Qt code that made those calls and didn't 
see any obvious problems with them.

However, there are multiple code paths--depending on whether your system 
supports CLOCK_MONOTONIC.  A Google and not a lot of actual reading 
seems to indicate there may be problems in Qt's detection of 
CLOCK_MONOTONIC support--many reports of which seem to be on embedded 
systems (though I don't know if they're using eglibc or uclibc or 
what).  I could see the Qt code causing issues if it detected improperly.
