I have the same problem, but I'm not using ntp. 

1. alter the time using redhat-config-date
2. no change to gnome clock applet
3. log out, log back in -- clock is updated

Setting component to gnome-panel.

I couldn't reproduce this issue when you just change the *time*, but
could when you change the timezone. However, the timezone issue is
fixed in rawhide with glibc-2.3.3-60 or later.

Please re-open if you can reproduce this issue with latest rawhide or
FC3 when it comes out. Thanks
