ah, I now understand why the coordinates aren't always exactly equal in these arcs
the offsets are added into the "last coordinates", then subtracted off to do the next arc. (x+a)-a != x in floating-point math
expecially on a pentium 60
jepler: in the new debs you uploaded to the gutsy directory - did you disable the pcspeaker?
all I did was add the linux-ubuntu-modules files .. the kernel is the same
duh - thanks.

FIFO queues with a single reader and writer can be insufficient for "hard real-time" systems where interrupt handlers require wait-free guarantees when writing to message queues. We present an algorithm which elegantly and practically solves this problem on small processors that are often found in embedded systems. ...
if only I could see the paper
(and knew what CAS stood for)
aha - now I see the PDF link :)
compare and swap, I think
so it says in the pdf
I would have guessed cam angle sensor or crank angle sensor (but that is where I come from)
