you have more than one clock generator in your PC and they don't have 100% the same speed. that's why.
you can prevent it with reclock, madVR SM or a custom resolution/refreshrate.
depending on what you choice the number will still be there but it is not going to repeat or drop a frame.
I have a lot of german results in google but that's generally not helpful in an English forum.
the sandybridge got a repeated frame about every 41 sec and the ivy dropped frame about every 4 mins.
the issue is "gone" with an haswell mainboard even with on ivy bridge CPU.
no clock perfectly matches the rest of your system clocks so these issue is there for all user.
some have a repeated/drop frame every 10 min other have a repeated/dropped frame every 4 hour + so they are totally save.
for a "fix" see the first part of this post.
