Yes.  Here is a timing demo for OSes that have a high res long seconds:

on mouseUp
   put longString(100000) into x
   put the long seconds into a  -- OS X only
   put "y" into char 4444 of x
   put the long seconds into b
   put b-a
end mouseUp

function longString n
   put empty into s
   repeat n times
     put "x" after s
   end repeat
   return s
end longString



The fix is really an enhancement.  Either I goofed and labeled it a bug 
or it got turned into a bug by another.

I think that is normally the "target milestone".  Some of those fell in 
a crack, but currently, those those are getting set.
