idle time

In ETHER 24.0, System 78.30, microcode 841, on Xerox Lisp Machine One:

I think there may be some problem with the idle time.  I came in this
morning and both our machines thought they had been idle less than two
hours.  There was strong circumstantial evidence that they hadn't been
touched by anyone since I had last used them.  (Except for the cloven
hoofprints on the keyboard.)

I must admit I was a bit dubious about the fat man in the red suit and
those little guys in pointy green hats.  I assumed that they were just
customer service types, but maybe this industrial espionage is getting
out of hand.

I looked at some code, and nothing seems amiss, though I can't read
those comments in Elvish.  Perhaps some wizard should investigate?
