The way I read that bug, my problem on first glance seemed opposite:

current UTC: 14:29
local time: 09:29
Rawhide time: 04:27

Nevertheless, systemctl enable hwclock-load.service fixed it. Thanks for the 
pointer to that bug, which long ago as it was marked fixed, I would have 
thought would have been inapplicable. I wonder if something since has 
inadvertently undone that fix, or a refinement of it is necessary for 
upgrades from F14 to Rawhide?
