"Wrong...". Are you changing the time each time by the amount of your
timezone correction? If so, are you running the hardware clock on
GMT/UTC? This won't work because the broken OS insists on the clock
being set to local time. You need to change the setting in
/etc/default/rcS (see comment in file for exactly what to change because
it's different in potato/slink IIRC).
