Yes, this has happened to me also.
Note that 2^32 hundredths-of-a-second = 497.1027 days,
which seems like a plausible explanation of what happened.
It's also the case that the CPU time of a process rolls over
after the same period of time (497+ days). Yes, this has happened
to me. Really.
Hah! -- whoever designed such short time limits?
O they of little faith!
