Using a DS1306, I found the ground plane was essential for a stable 32768 Hz
signal. I tried a number of ground planes in a proto board I was building. Who
would have predicted that the best results came from the ground plane that was
described in the 1306 datasheet. Lesson: before using a DS32KHz, I'll definitely
connect the "NC pins" (sic) to ground as specified in the datasheet.

+1E3 on tvb's picPETs! Thanks, Tom!
