I tried to use the routines in cpuuse.c to do some profiling of an  
application.  The numbers are pretty much unusable because the  
'ticks_executed' counter is incremented not only for each tick that  
the task is active (_Thread_Tickle_timeslice in score/src/ 
threadtickletimeslice.c), but also each time the task is dispatched  
(_Thread_Dispatch in score/src/threaddispatch.c).  Is this latter  
increment an error?
