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?
