ntp is really running on that machine - i now did turned it off. I will let it run now forthe night - and then take a look if the machine has lost some time.

An other thing i forgot to mention - i am runnuing asterisk not as root - should i runn asterisk as root - and nice -10 for example ?

Just a thought to tide you over till someone else throws an answer out, and possibly not your problem. Do you have ntp running on that machine? And is your machine's clock losing time? I seem to remember that asterisk really doesn't handle time skips well at all. And if your clock is losing time and ntp doesn't slew you forward slowly enough, you will have a lot of timers get confused.
