I would imagine that the rpclock provided by Apple is tuned for Apple
clients. Then add the 32-64 mystery and well , I don't know.
The first thing I would try is a 64 bit openSUSE client. I am forwarding
this to the team to see if someone else can help. My Brother a "Mac Fan"
is not sure either.
Keep in touch
