The latter is not true - at least not for any implementation I'm aware of.
ioMicroMSecs() is usually implemented by a call to the underlying OS timer
functions and should be an equivalent for the time since system (read OS)
startup and not Squeak startup. It should therefore be very hard to start
Squeak even remotely close for this to be a problem.

Sorry - that was a typo.
