Dual-boot setup, incorrect time in Debian's side

I am running a dual boot system with Windows XP and Debian just
upgraded to unstable installed.

As usual Windows sets the hardware clock to local time. To compensate
for this I have UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS as specified.

However this setting seems to be ignored. Debian seems to always think
that the hardware clock is set to UTC, so when running Debian the
clock is one hour ahead.

My timezone is Europe/Madrid, just checked...

# date -R
Tue, 26 Feb 2008 15:46:42 +0100

# cat /etc/timezone

# md5sum /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Madrid
9adedd59faaf242a67cdfcdc9e7020fa  /etc/localtime

I see the suggestion of trying...

# hwclock --localtime --show
select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out

Yes, as told somewhere --directisa is required for some systems.

# hwclock --localtime --show --directisa
Tue Feb 26 15:48:08 2008  -0.881809 seconds

The option now is setting HWCLOCKPARS=--directisa in
/etc/init.d/hwclock.sh directly or use /etc/default/rcS instead. But
no matter what I try, when rebooting the clock is still one hour

Should a bug to libc6 --owner package for /usr/bin/tzselect-- or
tzdata be fired? Any ideas welcome...

Cordially, Ismael
