Kclock won't keep set time.

Each time I reboot, the ^#%&! clock jumps four hour ahead.... I can reset it 
by sudoing into kcontrol but it only lasts until next reboot. Here is the 
output from console. Maybe it will help someone (kde?) who knows what they 
are doing to fix it.

cougar at CougarsDen:~$ sudo kcontrol
Error: "/var/tmp/kdecache-cougar" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Link points to "/var/tmp/kdecache-root"
ERROR: Communication problem with kcontrol, it probably crashed.
