Yeah. When I put -rt9 on the UV box, it was doing the just idling, and
boom thing I saw with earlier releases on both my Q6600 and x3550 M3
boxes. -rt10 seems to have just changed the timing.

I'll update the x3550 M3, and see if it still gripes. UV isn't virgin
source, has to be twiddled a little. (symptom was identical though)
