Is this true on every VLC supported platform, ie on BeOS as well? I'm 
asking because BeOS R5 is unaware of the Speedstep feature of my 
Pentium-M. It is probably unaware of that feature on any processor. If 
I unplug the power while running, everything timing related will slow 
down in BeOS. I have not tried with VLC yet, I don't even know if using 
the performance counter will produce the desired results when SpeedStep 
kicks in...
