SCHED_ULE is not recommended for production use currently. Now that 
doesn;t stop me from using it in certain situations (like some java video servers I 
have at work, where I've found performance to be BETTER), but until it is 
in such a place where all the kinks are worked out, I suspect we'll have 
some weirdness in how events are handled  as well, which could 
theoretically have an effect on this.

I think that while this is a worthwhile bug to bring to the FreeBSD 
developers working on SCHED_ULE, its not something that should neccesarily 
be considered a bug in ircd-ratbox.

Just my $.02, which means nothing since I've been inactive for so long.
