strange problem with system time

I took an older machine (HP Vectra, P2-450, 128M, 10G, eth0=dfe530tx+,
eth1=3c905b) and did a fresh install of FC1 on it. I ran up2date and
applied all fixes.
The system appears to work fine except that the system time keeps
jumping to approximately 4 hours before the current time. This happens
whether or not ntpd is running. hwclock is fine.
I tried setting the system to time to current time +4 hours. The next
occurrence still went back to current time -4 hours.
The only pattern I see in syslog is that the jump always appears to
occur when a message like the following appears:
Apr 14 11:52:55 shoal kernel: eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x45E1
(This msg is always the first one with the incorrect time.)
Anyone have any ideas?
