I am running today's rawhide and my clock is all screwed up.
Truth be told
this has been happening for a couple of weeks now. The clock on the panel
(gnome-applets) shows the time 5 hours into the future. If I adjust date
and time, the current time (greyed out because I use ntp) shows the correct
time. I tried checking and unchecking use UTC and nothing happens. I live
in the central time zone. When I reboot into Windows the time is the
screwed time from rawhide. What is wrong?
It could be a few things, I expect Windows is finding with Linux about

A while back there was a bug in the gnome applet for displaying the time
that would ignore the timezone - what does "date" from a console say?
Does it agree with the applet?
Perhaps your Linux box is even syncing with a bad time server, but I
