I'm finding that the Sys.getTime() timer isn't actually giving me 1ms resolution on some windows platforms. I'm using the following test case (which of course could be in error

:

`import org.lwjgl.Sys;`

public class TimerTest {

public static void main(String argv[]) {

long oldTime = 0;

while (true) {

long time = (Sys.getTime() * 1000) / Sys.getTimerResolution();

if (time != oldTime) {

System.out.println(System.currentTimeMillis()+" : "+time+" (delta = "+(time-oldTime)+")");

oldTime = time;

}

}

}

}

I think it should be only showing deltas of 1ms, but on some windows systems (3 on XP that I've had so far) I get output similar to:

`1213123628999 : 1019517778 (delta = 1)`

1213123629234 : 1019518013 (delta = 1)

Any ideas why we're getting those peaks? I am getting the correct result on at least one XP machine. As an interesting aside the resolution is actually fixed by playing an OpenAL source (presumably the OpenAL lib is doing some resolution setting on the timer or something).

Thanks for any help,
