Hello again,

I forgot, I'm upgraded to bios revision A08 last week.
Now I'm running the following script to force the bug happen.

while true; do
  sudo /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh start;
  sleep 2;
  sudo /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh stop;
  sleep 2;
done

...And guess, I got it, because in other term ran the following script:
~$ while true; do sudo hwclock --show; sleep 2; done

select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out

Well, had to kill a lot of instances of hwclock that were running. I didn't know that script lauch a new instance each time.
My conclusion is, Ubuntu 6.06.1 with Linunx 2.6.17 is affected too, even using --directisa.

Anybody has a solution for this.
