Is it the system clock ("date") that's running fast, or the hardware
clock ("hwclock --show")?

It's apparently just the system clock ("date")... the hwclock --show stays fine, until reboot when shutdown rewrites it.
And my latest test shows exactly twice as fast while sleeping (13 minutes in sleep set it 13 minutes fast)
Leaving it to do nothing it seems to do fine.
Does this give me some good info to solving the problem?
