Subject: Non-GMT date/time moves forward/backward
Date: Wed, 14 Jul 1999 20:43:40 Turkey
X-Mailer: Endymion MailMan Standard Edition v3.0.11

Package: base
Version: 2.1

When I install the base system, and configure it so that my clock is not set to 
GMT and my locale is configured to be Turkey, the clock assumes wrong date/time 
in the following case:
   1. the system boots up successfully, date/time is correct
   2. the system is halted properly, runlevels etc. normal
   3. some time is elapsed (30. min, 2 hours, days)
   4. the system boots up successfully
   5. the date/time is incorrect, it goes into the future or the past.

First, I thought the bug was with the fragility of init scripts, but then the 
time changes should have been +/- 2 hours, since my timezone is +0200 GMT. It 
seems that the shift in clock is related to the time system remains shut. I 
have observed no error when I have merely rebooted the system (via proper 
reboot command)

Since I have not fully understood and investigated the reason of erroneous 
date/time, I don't have a bugfix or suggestion.

I use a Debian 2.1 slink sytem. Hardware setup: x86, PCI. The error recurs on 
both a PII system and Pentium system. The BIOS is AWARD MODULAR BIOS. Also, The 
error occurs with both 2.0 and 2.2 kernel versions.
