I had considered that at first but my gut still tells me that's not the
case. It was keeping perfect time with NTP until a big dist-upgrade and
a reboot. The board is 15 months old - an Abit AN7.

I've heard of it but not tried it. I did try the openntp package before
NTP but tossed it for reasons I can't remember. I'm holding out to see
if a fix for bug  #342887 corrects things or not. The original bugreport
sounds exactly like the same symptoms I've been having.

Nonetheless, thanks for the suggestions and trying to help.
