Hmm, yes. You wouldn't be running System 7.1 by any chance, would you?
All my timing functions based on 'get-universal-time' (they didn't
need to be accurate, just rough and ready) went weird since I moved
to System 7.1 - whatever it's giving back, it sure as hell isn't
seconds. I've had to crawl through large chunks of code changing
everything to use 'get-internal-real-time' or 'get-internal-run-time'.
