Ah, yes... I've seen the thread. I haven't commented, as it is really,
really weird, and I don't know what to think/say.

I think only bisection could shed some light on this. And it would be
wonderful if you could do that, but I understand that it takes time. :-

Are you absolutely sure about that? That is, are you "just" assuming
the scheduler won't move stuff, or have you put some debugging or
printing in place to verify that to be the case? 

I'm asking because, yet, in theory that is what one would expect. But,
as I think you know very well, although in theory there is no
difference between theory and practice, in practice, there is. :-)
