Please do not hate to be helpful. It was a bad malfunction perhaps due 
to a run-down battery on a machine turned off for two weeks. I will keep 
watch to see if it happens again overnight.

Is that *nix or Windows? My XP system only checks the net time 
automatically once a week and refused to update at first on request 
because the dates did not match. Typically windows stupidity. If I click 
'Update from internet', it should believe that I really mean it.
