I ran into this problem a long time ago.  I got around it by getting
rid of 'dst' in the timezone line of my kernel config file.  My RTC is
set to local time (moved ahead & back when DST comes & goes), and I
use a /usr/share/zoneinfo/posixrules built with POSIXRULES=US/Eastern
as /etc/localtime.

I'll see if I have to add the 'dst' option again when DST arrives
again in a couple of weeks.
