It looks like a bad edit in the error checking code.  It is the remains 
of code that
was trying to see if tv_sec or tv_nsec is < 0.  Try the attached patch.

This was probably introduced as part of fixing PR841.

FWIW the same code is in an "#if 0" block on the 4.7 branch and on the 
CVS head,
the error checking is done by a helper routine so it is the same 
everywhere.  I
saw this type of code in a lot of places and moved it to a common and 
more correct routine.

Let me know if this works.
