Things to check out:


exaine your log files. Most are date/time stamped. If your clock changes,
you should be able to see around the time this took place according to
the logs files.

Log files may also let you know what application/service may have been
changing your clock.

inspect your clock (in BIOS) to see if it is in GMT.

See if you have somehow installed more than one ntp client (one that say
only starts up via cron job every 24 hours vs one that is
daemonized/inetd(on demand).
