Timebase and decrementer stop after CPU gets warmer

I am using custom board with 855Ts version D3. The 50Mhz version runs fine
but the 66 Mhz version hangs or start to hang in the delay loop after a
while. This happens immediately, if the CPU is warm. Obviously the timer is
not decrementing.
The TBSCR[TBE] bit is being set (yes the key register is used BEFORE the
value is being written.) 860TD3s do not have this problem either (66 Mhz

Any ideas ? Do you think it is a PLL supply voltage problem or a CPU
"feature" ?

Thanx in advance for any helpful remarks,
