+         completetly, and has the effect of disabling timers that
+         depend on it: the context switch timer and the heap profiling
+         timer.  Context switches will still happen, but
+         deterministically and at a rate much faster than normal.
+         Disabling the interval timer is useful for debugging, because
+         it eliminates a source of non-determinism at runtime.</para>
