exim_wait_tick() paranoia

Simon, thank you.

So, I see two approaches. The one which will have the least delaying impact is
this one, which I'm entirely convinced by.

The other approach would be to sleep for *two* ticks, or two times the
resolution we need, so that if there's a little jitter then we just rely on the
jitter magnitude being << our resolution magnitude.

I'm leaning towards just sleeping for twice the resolution; in the meantime,
does this patch even fix the problem?
