This bad behavior seems to have been caused by issues with futex system
calls.  Here's the most detailed description I've seen so far, including
a small test program that can be used to replicate the behavior (I
haven't tried it since it modifies the system time):

Rather than rebooting, simply setting the system time manually or
finding some other way to call settimeofday() would have also restored
normal behavior.
