Thank you for your offer, but my machine at home has no networking at
all. I have a radio clock receiver that works. But the problem I have
mentioned is a bit difficult if your CMOS clock runs localtime
instead of UTC. UTC never changes during DST; therefore the kernel
thought the RTC does not have to be corrected. If it would have tried
to correct the RTC, it would have added the (hopefully) right offset.
That was on problem.
