   * WORKS ONLY ON UNIX, calls nanosleep(). On Solaris, this is more precise than the built-in Thread.sleep() call
   * implementation that, at least in JDK 1.4.2, goes to select(3C). On Linux, it should be more precise, but it
   * turns out that nanosleep() in this OS, at least in version 7.3 that I tested, has a resolution of at least 20ms.
   * This seems to be a known issue; hopefully they fix it in future.

   * This is relevant only on Solaris. By default, the resolution of the thread local CPU timer is 10 ms. If we enable
   * micro state accounting, it enables significantly (but possibly at a price of some overhead). So I turn it on only
   * when thread CPU timestamps are really collected.
