I don't suppose this machine dual-boots Windows does it?

I had a problem way back when I first set up Debian on a dual-boot
machine where Windows was storing the local time to the BIOS, (in the UK
during Summer, hence GMT+1) - while Linux was expecting it to be GMT.

(Or it might have been the other way around ... it was a long time ago)

Either way it should be obvious if this is the problem - the time will
go screwy whenever the machine was previously booted into Windows, and
not otherwise.

You could try checking the UTC setting in /etc/default/rcS - it should
be 'yes', but it might be worth setting it to 'no' and see if this fixes
the problem (if it does, it would be better to fix the problem on the
Windows side and set it back to UTC=yes - but I have no idea how to do
