[time-nuts] NTP problem on Windows

I use Linux as well as Windows, where appropriate. In this case, I did not 
reboot the Windows system in question. I only restarted the NTP service, 
which is a port of the opensource NTP daemon by Meinberg. I know Windows 
bashing is a popular sport, but in this case, I don't think it is 
applicable. Over the years, I have had problems on Linux systems as well.
