Description Stefan Sorensen 2001-01-18 06:21:38 EST
/etc/init.d/halt contains the line

  runcmd "Syncing hardware clock to system time" /sbin/hwclock --systohc

This writes the local time to the hardware RTC disregarding that it might 
be set to UTC, giving a clock scew on each shutdown.

A fix would be to do the same as in the rc.sysinit script (and ofcourse
replace --hctosys with --systohc).
