Public bug reported:

Actually I don't, but when I pull out the power supply of my imac (which is disconnected from the internet so no ntp), the system clock is reset to the year 1907. 

It was a hard finding out that this was the problem and also a pain to
set the system clock to today (I had to log in with xterm and type 'sudo
