Ok. Thanks for the suggestion. Have added it to the kernel line, and it
seems to have solved the problem (for now).
I noticed a difference between different kernel versions. 2.6.12-1.1381
(FC3) has the problem, but 2.6.14-1.1644 (FC4) does not. Not really in
the mood to upgrade my entire production server to FC4 just yet, so I
will be testing the clock line and seeing if that works for me.
