It was actually in a C++ application using the high res 'multi media' timer (IIRC) in an application trying to sync clocks on external hardware. The information we found on the web implicated just AMD processors and was consistent with our observations, albeit with a fairly small sample set. I wasn't directly involved with the problem so I don't remember the details, but it was within the last two months and the computers involved were probably less than a year old.
