Wait one hour :)
I had a stange behaviour with some release of FreeBSD (around 7).
We are 7 hours ahead of UTC; after a fresh install I usually do a
system upgrade to be sure to be up with every patches.
It occured to me a couple of times that the installworld would not
work, even though I adjkerntz before. The only way I had was to change
the CMOS clock to the local time and change it back to UTC after
Of course, after 7 hours the problem would disappear.
