yup, that could go into the os/ specific directories.
I am not that much of a portability guru as Bernd but I guess on the  
one hand we should be able to have posix timers and on the other hand  
we could use the much more advanced linux timers.
And there is a multitude to chose from ;-)

On the other hand - seeing only one "bug" so far in the completely  
rewritten timer code  is really a measure of quality :))
