Sorry -- wasn't trying to devalue your contribution. Sometimes it's just hard
to tell what's going on with the regression testing. You look at the board
trying to see the state of things and then stuff doesn't update for days :-(
Given that sslapeta is running intel-win32-8_1, I'd be interested in knowing
if you have the same versions or different. Maybe if you are going to run at
a low frequency you could make sure to do something unique like running in
release mode instead of debug. This would add another dimension even though
it is low frequency that otherwise wouldn't get covered.

Yep, that would probably be wise...
