I have this problem when dead batteries on the mobo prevent the hwclock
from preserving the time.
Reboots don't show this (shutdown -r) but yanking the AC to fiddle with
switches on the cards (which takes pulling them out) or swapping
known-good with suspect-under-test gives me a boot-up time somewhere
back in August of 2006.
