Description Robert M. Riches Jr. 2003-04-12 12:43:38 EDT
Description of problem:
The new glibc (or something else made available to up2date between
4/5 and 4/12) corrupts time-of-day logging during boot.  It appears
timezone information is corrupted from when sshd starts and some
point later in booting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100% of the two times I rebooted since updating

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Have system clock set to use UTC.
1. run up2date to get the latest RPMs.
2. reboot.
3. Look at times in /var/log/boot.log.  They will jump
   forward several hours just after sshd starts.  Then,
   they will jump back to where they are supposed to be
   later in the boot sequence.
Actual results:
Times logged in /var/log/boot.log and /var/log/messages
jump ahead several hours just after sshd starts and jump
back later in the sequence.

Expected results:
Times logged should be reasonably monotonic.

I never saw anything like this and apparently nobody else did.  Can you
reproduce this on a freshly installed system without local modifications?  And
especially with RHL9?

No reply in more than 5 months.  I'm closing this as WORKSFORME.
