Dear All,

We have discovered and fixed a shreduling issue where
accumulated rounding errors caused timing skew depending
on the duration used to advanced time.  It is noticeable in
tightly timed shreds (like otf_*.ck) after a few minutes.
This problem has been fixed.  chuck- is identical
to the earlier release today except for this fix.  This
is what Micro$oft might call a "critical update".


If you get this update, fire up otf_*.ck : the easiest
way (using Perry's one shell manuever):

   > chuck --loop &
   > chuck + otf_01.ck
   > chuck + otf_02.ck

If it still sounds OK (the shreds don't phase) after a few minutes,
then the problem is gone.
