As for your 8 hours drift, it might be because you set up Debian to think

Debian the hardware clock is set to local time. Unless that is, one
knows of a way to make Mac OS think of the hardware clock as UTC...

yeah, set its timezone to London ;-)

seriously though i was having all kinds of wacky trouble with the clock under linux until i set the hardware clock to GMT and configured linux accordingly..

the only thing I am using macos for at the moment is mail which will change as soon as i finish figuring out fetchmail+ promail ;-) ymmv if you use macos more ..
