Some people have suggested changing HWCLOCKPARS="--directisa" in /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh.

I made this change last night, and restarted once or twice since then, including a boot into Windows XP.

This afternoon, the 'Time-of-day clock stopped' failure occurred again after I changed a BIOS setting.

Whatever --directisa does, it is not a complete fix for the problem.
