I can say it isn't the hardware. I recompiled the kernel with 
CONFIG_HZ_100 option set, then rebooted with that kernel.  I started the 
glibc build from 5.7.1 and 12 hours later under high load the clock is 
still accurate. Problem fixed. Thanks for the ideas, folks. They helped 
me to learn which is the most important thing in my book.
