I've tested d-i on my Thecus N2100 with a bogus date and it now works
Jan 1 00:00:00 clock-setup: System date is before 1-1-1970; correcting...
Jan 1 00:00:00 clock-setup: System date has been set to 1-1-1970.
Dec 16 19:50:40 clock-setup: Wed Dec 16 19:50:40 UTC 2009
Dec 16 19:50:40 clock-setup: rdate: adjust local clock by 1260993039.995376 seconds
