Description Joe Orton 2004-08-10 14:26:21 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a box which somehow got its clock set to October 2004 or
something, for a day or two.  rhnsd then got confused and wasn't
applying automatic updates, even after the clock was fixed: it was
sleeping for a *long* time:

[root@cocoa root]# strace -p 1358
Process 1358 attached - interrupt to quit
time(NULL)                              = 1092151060
time(NULL)                              = 1092151060
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {SIG_DFL}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
nanosleep({4830074, 0},  <unfinished ...>

which is sleep(55 days) by my calculation?
