Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: ntp

Binary package hint: ntpdate

When using Lucid (Netbook Remix, GNOME) and setting configuration to 'keep synchronized with internet servers' in "Time & Date Settings", it requests that ntp support is being installed.
When clicking install, ntp seems to be installed as a windows appears showing 'ntp service starts'. After clicking 'Choose Server' ntp crashes causing the whole system instantly to be shut down.
