Maybe things such as cron, at, etc ... ? You can check the log messages from
the anoncvs service.
Note that you may have problems in the kernel too, because of bad interraction
between the kernel and the CMOS clock. This depends on your motherboard.
I think the fix was in sys/arch/i386/isa/clock.c.

But would I be in a similar situation I would upgrade to 1.4.1 ...
