Since 01/01/2000 :

[root@angelus /root]# cat /etc/sysconfig/clock
[root@angelus /root]# setclock
mktime() failed unexpectedly (rc -1).  Aborting.
[root@angelus /root]# date

[root@angelus /root]# rpm -qf /usr/sbin/setclock

After a reboot, the problem disappears :

[root@angelus /root]# setclock
[root@angelus /root]#
