I remember Mondrian said there were timer problems, but that they seemed
fixed.  Is it a cold boot/warm boot problem?

Too bad.

You could try cold booting it to see if that's the problem.

You could also try dumping the superio registers with the factory BIOS and
with Coreboot to see if there's something that needs to be fixed.
