One thing you may want to try is remove the call from REG_C
read to rtc_timer_update() again - on a second thought it may
be wrong to do it here, as (other than check_update_timer()
and alarm_timer_update()) the function doesn't change with
RTC_PF getting cleared (i.e. I may have wrongly added the call
in analogy to the other two).

I would expect the issue to be that create_periodic_time()
pointlessly destroys and then recreates an identical rate timer.

I'm puzzled though that some Windows versions depend on
the RTC to maintain their wall clock time...
