Sorry, bugtracker garbled my comment above, should read:

Same problem on all my Karmic (32-bit) boxes. Clocks went forward an
hour last night, but system time didn't change. Wheither I go
System>Administration>Time and Date, or try this via the Clock?Calender
applet, teh settings have no effect.

If I run ntpdate in terminal, I get:

ian at COOLERMASTER:~$ sudo ntpdate
28 Mar 06:09:35 ntpdate[7823]: no servers can be used, exiting

I've tried several time servers but its always the same.

For what its worth, I have both ntp and ntpdate installed.
