I do think that the problem would not occurs if you enable APM in the
kernel because with APM enabled, system time (i.e. time maintained by
the kernel) is resetted after a RESUME.
If you do not want to enable APM in the kernel, a quick fix would be to
comment the line:
hwclock --systohc $GMT
My decision would be to enable APM unless you have specific problems
