Time changed back to old daylight savings

Well, the file did exist, and when I deleted it and reran ntpdate it didn't
make a difference. The man page says that the file needs to exist if the
CMOS clock is set to local time, which it is. 

I tried running adjkerntz -a and -i and rebooting, but that didn't help
either. I'm totally at a loss as to what is going on here.

Don, I haven't followed this thread closely, so if this was suggested
before, apologies.  If it works, then  you can post back to the list.  
It's "off the wall" and may have nothing to do with your problem.

Is it possible that you have either created or deleted /etc/wall_cmos_clock?
That would account for a 1 hr difference even if all your timezone files
were correct.  See man adjkerntz.

I believe you need to reboot if you create/delete that file - there may be
some other way but I don't know it.
