Well, actually, the adjtime file should be deleted last thing, but I don't
think it is of consequence for your particular problem. It might be a
problem for next boot up, though.

Very weird :-(

I'd concentrate on having the system clock correct. I would do that before
login in into kde, for example, in text mode in the console. I would also
check again yast time configuration, and finally, start up kde. Posibly,
just posibly, kde gets confused if you change system time at mid-session.
