rtc not behaving in etch?

During boot on my Etch machine (Dell PowerEdge 830 with an Intel Pentium D CPU 
2.80GHz), during boot, there is a message about select() timing out 
on /dev/rtc.  That message displays twice, a few more messages, then there is 
a message about "trying to set the system clock again."  I've looked through 
the syslog and dmesg, and these messages are not in there.  Or else I'd post 
the exact messages. :)

Ah, a google search found the exact message for me:
select to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out

But no solution.

Has anyone seen anything like this.  Is it something to be worried about?
