Another possibility is that the MessageTally is still running while
you are looking at it's stack with the debugger. Or perhaps
the reverse; it is NOT running but the startTime variable only
has a meaningful value when it *is* running.

We use MessageTally quite a lot, so I think it generally works.
What was it that you were trying to do?
