I had a similar problem in my job and solved it by using setitimer(ITIMER_REAL, 
...)/getitimer(ITIMER_REAL, ...) instead of gettimeofday(). However, it's a bit 
tricky and it entails changing all code depending on it; but it works perfectly 
(my systems are running 24/7).

If somebody is interested, I'll explain details.
