My system has been getting the incorrect time on bootup recently too, although 
it has worked fine before.  HWClock is set to GMT (at least I think it is -- 
time is the same as actual UK time in december, so that's GMT, right?).

A few minutes after bootup, it will say something like 01:xx, so I guess the 
clock is starting at midnight... battery problems on a 2001 ibook already?

If not, then I figure it's some issue with 2.6, but I'm not sure how to narrow 
it down... would any of the timer-related modules on ppc affect this?  I'm 
not exactly sure which timer features I need, so I think I installed them all 
(rtc, enhanced rtc, etc).
