Yes my system is totaly out of sync sure, but thats because of the suspend to 
disk! It is still set to the time it has been while suspending! 

i have running ntp, so a norrmal reboot is no problem! but ntpd doesnt work if 
the system is totally out of sync as it is after a suspend to disk, i have to 
update the system time manually (by using the hwclock as reference or using 
ntpdate). [As the system time is still the old after waking up from disk, i 
can even use an "at now + 5 min" in my suspend to disk script to do that]

As i wrote before:

so just to be out of sync seems not to be a big deal for X 
(where can i find more information about beeing out of sync and X problems?)
