Why is that so surprising?  Perhaps you should read the <cough> code?
mud_time_passsed() is called in the age() function.  The age()
function is called in mana_gain(), hit_gain(), and move_gain().
mana_gain(), hit_gain(), and move_gain() are all called in
point_update() which in turn is called every SECS_PER_MUD_HOUR seconds
from heartbeat().  It took five to ten times longer to write this
message than to find that out.
