Description ttaka 2000-02-07 18:49:18 EST
timetool uses the config file /etc/sysconfig/clock generated
by timeconfig and assumes that if the hw clock is UTC,
/etc/sysconfig/clock contains the regular expression ".*GMT.*".
But unfortunately, what is expected is the string "UTC="yes""
when the hw clock is UTC.

Because of this wrong regexp, timetool does not work well when
the hw clock is UTC.

This is fixed in the currently shipping timetool.
