I dunno, unfortunately.  My UDB did this a few times, then righted itself
without prompting or tweaking.  There is a lightweight RTC patch for the
kernel floating around somewhere, but I'm not sure where to find it nor am
I sure it'll help.

Anyone else have this kind of thing that can remember how to fix it for
good?  I've got a UDB that could use the same info.
