Actually this is a known problem
Dave Long has been looking at it for a while, it's reported solved on
4430 Panda now, but on 4460 Panda he currently believes that there's an
issue with latency at 32kHz timer register read action, ie, the cpu can
read stale data from there under some circumstances.
He mentioned yesterday that this was getting discussed on the Arm Linux
mailing list too.
