Just discovered one of our old boxes has a slight time issue. In
particular:

bash-2.03# while [ 1 ]; do date; sleep 1; done

I have stopped CRON. (calls rts), and stopped xntpd. And yet, time
behaves this irregularly.

Any suggestions? Battery dead (does that give these symptoms?) Or
broken hardware?
