Hmm, it's not on a NFS, but I think it's a very related problem: My
hardware clock sometimes does funny things when suspending/rebooting
(like just adjusting itself by a few minutes/hours in any direction),
so indeed that could be the issue. Some while ago my dirty workaround
of syncing via NTP when possible doesn't work anymore, and it's very
well possible these problems started appearing since then.
