Hi "anonymous",
the 53132A only does that for a couple of nanoseconds. Then it jumps to a  
stupid value such as:
0.004 us
-0.002 us
0.999,999,993 s
It get's even better when the counter decides it doesn't have enough  
resolution in frequency mode:
2,3** u
Absolutely horrible to parse, these guys should have heard of scientific  
notation. Not sure who programmed that unit, or if there is a firmware  
upgrade that gives proper numbers.

Counters  like the Agilent 53230 actually WILL output negative delays 
in this case  as long as the delta is still small. This is a quite useful 
feature in  such cases...
