I spoke with the engineer who wrote the exclusive access feature, and 
Ed's feeling is correct: only the wallclock time * 1 will be recorded.  
There's an open RFE to fix the issue.  I'll have to dig a little to find 
out what the IZ number is (if there is an external IZ number).  So, Ed, 
you're down to Reuti's suggestions...
