I too faced this problem in past. My impression is that usually at
time of install the system clock is not set in some distros or your
local time gets set as EST (US) which means that at next boot in terms
of local time (Indian) you are looking at file system having a future
time stamp by about 12 hours.
You get this error even if you run updatedb or sudo commands on
install. This occurs for the first day and then everything starts
behaving presumably because your local time stamp is now atleast equal
or ahead of time stamp on files..

Perhaps a trivial bug that needs to be corrected in installer.
