receive, but replay then fails to call adjtime() as expected from the

My current belief is that replay mode is not populating the peer
list correctly; I am instrumenting to check this.

The bad news is that I'm deep into trying to trace the behavior of difficult
code.  The good news is that this could be the last problem before I get
