Comment 1 Michael J. Kofler 2004-06-23 00:37:17 EDT
Appears to be a problem with the latest kernel, as when I rebooted
into a previous kernel, the clock kept proper time (I had tried
rebooting with the most recent kernel first).
Clock runs fast with: kernel-smp-2.6.7-1.441
Clock works with: kernel-smp-2.6.6-1.427

arts was also crashing randomly ... not sure if it's related.

Apologies that this got ignored, I'll assume the problem has gone away
and close the bug. Please re-open if you still see it
