[time-nuts] Symmetricom TS2100-GPS - 1PPS has 10uS offset

They removed the compensation delay from the menus & telnet interface starting with firmware 4.0 :(

Is there any way to save the setting in the eng/timing/offset menu choice? I've seen it set to different values on various TS2100's,
so I don't know if it is auto-calculated somehow or what.
