Hmmnn does the existence of /etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate on my dapper
machine mean that whenever the internet connection via eth0 is
brought up, my system clock is being "corrected" to match the time on
some server??? So that when I cleanly shutdown my box, the hardware
clock's locally/manually adjusted time is being overwritten with the
"corrected" time now held in the systems clock?

If so what do I break if I do an

su -c "rm /etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate" 

???????????????????
