that could be it. when i first got this 7500, the battery was dead,
probably the original battery that was in this thing. i was having
strange problems then (with the old battery) but i wasn't running
gnu/linux just yet (although i was thinking of doing so). well, try
that, and if it works out with the new battery, then you probably won't
have freezing. if not, well, you could run ntpdate on a cronjob to
update the clock.
