    SubjectRe: 2.4.29: strange behaviour system clock

    I have also seen such offsets on some boxes running at EADS (a Compaq
    Proliant [<-- this one has a very small offset] and a no name machine
    [<-- this one is terrible in 10 minutes 2-3 minutes too fast]). I have
    no numbers at the moment.
    If you need some more information please contact me.

    I tried to fix this issue also, but haven't found any solution. Both
    servers are running SuSE Linux I think on 8.x (2.4 kernel). I don't know
    at the moment if we tried already an update to 2.6 kernel.

    For the moment our fix is a 10 minute cronjob which execute
    hwclock --hctosys
    because hardware clock is running correct.

    A fix or a hint whats wrong would be very nice :-).
