I think this is the embarrassing part. Changing to local time fixes
things briefly, but when ntpdate runs again, it updates the internal
clock to UTC, not local. So then the Gnome clock applet is off again.
Evolution message stamps are off, but Evolutions calendar time indicator
line is OK.

How do I tell ntpdate to update to LOCAL time, not UTC? I used to have
a link from /etc/localtime to some timezone file somewhere. The system
set that up, so I am a little vague on the details. The upgrade removed
that link -- I assume there is some other timezone mechanism that I just
don't understand.

If I could fix that, it would fix all but the Evo calendar time
indicator, and that's just an annoyance.
