But aside of the actual values it's pretty obvious why this happens. It's a
simple rounding error. Minimal, but still. To avoid rounding errors you'd
have to find mult and shift values which exactly result in:

(freq * mult) >> shift = 1e9

which is impossible for freq = 3312 * 1e6.

A possible fix for this is, because the error is in the low PPB range, to
adjust the error once per second or in some other sensible regular
interval.

John?

Thanks,
