Description of problem:
Gnome clock applet going more than twice as fast as it should.
Connecting to time servers works correctly and sets clock to correct
time, but within a minute the time is wrong (seconds progress at 2+
per actual second)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to gnome
Actual Results: clock performed as described above
Expected Results: clock keeps time
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
