sigh. spoke too soon. at some point after the initial date reset, possibly in combination with ntpd (and maybe not..) the time appears to jump forward to the next nearest hour. this may cause havoc, depending on your software.
ntpdate will fix it, but you have to wait for it to happen (5-10 minutes?), then use ntpdate to correct the problem.
