As implemented now, win32 gettimeofday does not give a consistent time because seconds and microseconds are collected with two different function calls.
A better solution, in my opinion, would be to use
win32 GetSystemTime function (together with mktime). This reduces accuracy to milliseconds, but time differences would be more reliable (no more extra 1 second errors in small times)
