The post P&R simulation model contains a GSR (global set/reset)
signal which defaults to 100 nS assertion after power-on and
overrides all other logic set/reset functions. If your stimulation
relies on logic to be function before this 100 nS period is over,
you can have problems. If you don't want to change your stimulus
it is possible to driver the GSR signal yourself to reduce the
pulse width.
