this file should with 12.3 and following not be deleted. It is the only

So, just for the record, whose idea was this design decision?

Recording setup of the CMOS clock just in /etc/adjtime and nowhere
else is not robust at all and will lead to many support problems.

It works in the ideal world, on a developer's laptop -- but not in
the real world where openSUSE is used. At my company, such code
quality is called "it runs in my home directory and to hell with
the rest" -- we get lots of such changes in openSUSE lately. :-(


PS: Werner, this is not explicitly not a personal criticism. As you
wrote, you're not guilty... ;-)
