My KDE workstation awhile ago would suddenly jump head 4 or 5 hours, then
back. It generally did this within a few seconds, but it was long enough for
the screen saver to start up. As per company policy, my screen saver has a
password. As it would do this sometimes 3-4 times an hour, you can imagine
how frustrating this would be. I have a new workstation now, so I cant
reproduce it anymore, but I always attributed it to hardware problems,
because it was a really cheap mobo. But you said the system clock only deals
with the hardware clock occationally. Does this mean there might have been
some other issues?
