Hi,

Today I was bitten by the date reset issue when upgrading to pb3. After
the reboot, the date was 1980-01-01

This seems to be a problem in the interaction between FreeBSD and BIOS;
see thread starting with
  http://lists.soekris.com/pipermail/soekris-tech/2002-December/001167.html
and also see phk's mail in which he asks to test at
  http://lists.soekris.com/pipermail/soekris-tech/2002-December/001184.html

I'll build a kernel with this fix just to see (is the kernel config on
the m0n0wall-site up-to-date?) but the real question is, is this a sign
that m0n0wall attempts to set the clock, and why?

regards,
--Bart
