Hmm, my hardware clock is set to UT, and I don't have this problem.  Are you 
sure your system is configured properly to recognize that your clock is UT?  
When you run 'date', does that give you local time or UT?

On my system (Gentoo Linux), I have a config file /etc/conf.d/clock, that 
contains the CLOCK variable, which I have set to "UTC".  This way, my system 
knows that it should correct the hardware clock to local time using the time 
zone that I specified.

Hope this helps,
