Ok, as silly as this may sound, have you checked these:

What is the time set to in the BIOS? (IS it set to GMT?)
In the configuration section of YAST, is GMT set to -u ?
What time zone are you in?
Is your CMOS battery old, maybe?

This last one REALLY kicked my butt for a couple of weeks a while back.
