If I boot the machine to PC DOS 6.2, "time" produces a current time that remains  correct after a few hours, but running FC4, the time displayed by GNOME runs at about twice real time.  Based upon one (accidental) test, it appears that the FC4/GNOME combination causes the hardware clock to run backward (lose time), if I reboot to DOS.
