It's not the operating system, actually, but the speed of the processor. The
startup routine in the original RTL used a counter to perform some timing
which was only a word in size. While this was perfectly OK back then, around
the appearance 200-300 MHz processors it started to overflow. The patched
RTL uses a longint instead.
