It did.  That's when I posted it.  Right after the 2AM -> 3AM change.

As I posted last weekend, my clock was already an hour behind, even for GMT. 
So it was saying 1 AM when it was really already 2 AM, and after 2 AM when it
should have said "3 AM PDT", it was still saying "1 AM PST".  It did not thus
recognize that PST -> PDT until an hour after it "really" did; my system now

netbsd4me:83 # uname -a ; date
NetBSD 0.9a NETBSD4ME#0 sparc
Sun Apr  3 10:39:15 PDT 1994

whereas it's really

isolar:2:240 % uname -a ; date
SunOS isolar 4.1.3 2 sun4c
Sun Apr  3 11:38:34 PDT 1994

So I'm back to being only 1 hour behind, at least :-)

Because my GMT is also one hour wrong, but you say yours are OK, I have to then
wonder if perhaps gettimeofday() has been changed recently?

Are other people still seeing their clocks as being 1 hour behind?

Any special ingredients in those brownies?	:-)


On another note, I built & installed "sup" (nothing from my source tree build
mkdir'd "/usr/lib/supfiles", so I had to suss that out).  Decided to try it
out in test mode:

netbsd4me:295 # sup -fNvs
SUP 8.26 (4.3 BSD) for system software at Apr  3 10:41:35
SUP Upgrade of current-allsrc at Sun Apr  3 10:41:36 1994
SUP Fileserver 7.13 (4.3 BSD) 9622 on at 10:41:36
SUP Requesting changes since Dec 31 16:00:00 1969

I already made the whole build from last weekend's tar babies.  I'd like to
avoid having "sup" suck the whole universe down upon first "real" invocation;
is there any way to do that, manually or otherwise?  My guess is that I'd have
to either run it with the "-k" option, or else manually create

/usr/lib/supfiles/<collection name>/when.<rel-suffix>

(what values of "rel-suffix" would be used?) and put timestamps in each of them
(what format are the timestamps in?  sup(1) doesn't say; is it just in the
 tv_sec long returned from gettimeofday(2)?)

Also, I noticed this in the "test" run output:

SUP Would create file README.export-control
SUP Would receive old file src/Makefile
SUP Would update file src/bin/Makefile
SUP Would update file src/bin/cp/Makefile
SUP Would update file src/bin/cp/cp.1
SUP Would receive new file src/bin/cp/cp.c

Curious to know why it said "receive new file src/bin/cp/cp.c" here.  I already
have a /usr/src/bin/cp/cp.c, thus my curiosity ...
