The mod in #66 does not work for me. Although marked as a duplicate, my bug
#465850 may be something else. If SuSE wants to put out a fix as in #68, that
is fine with me, but it does not fix my case.

Here are 2 situations:
1) On my desktop, which runs essentially continuously, a reboot starts up with
the time 7 hours behind (not ahead). (I am in the Phoenix time zone.) At the
'bootsplash' in the /var/log/messages file, it then jumps to the correct time.
This behavior did not change with the mod in #66. Some log files are written
with the wrong time information.

2) My laptop is usually off. When I turned it on, the time was 14 hours
behind. I made the mod, set the correct date and time manually, and rebooted.
Unlike the desktop, the time was 7 hours behind -- it was not even the correct
time. Upon a second reboot, the time was again 14 hours behind.

I set my clock to be for local time.

The behaviors here do not happen on SuSE 10.3 or earlier versions. It is
something new. I did not understand all the discussion on this issue. Are the
file system people demanding a change so they can avoid the "time in the
future" error messages on reboots? If so, I would prefer the messages to the
new behavior.

In any case, the issues here are pointing to a weakness in the development of
linux (or other open source) software. There are too many independent
entities, with little or no overall guiding management to ensure consistency.
