This occurred yesterday on a new install of 6.10 edgy desktop on a new Dell Latitude D820 with BIOS A03. BIOS diagnostics from setup the RTC failed. Clock raced until edgy came up. Disconnected and reconnected the coin-cell battery as instructed and set the BIOS clock on startup. BIOS passed diagnostics. System seems OK.

Questions: does this situation risk corrupting or losing data? Will I likely see the problem recur? Our group will not be able to use Ubuntu if the answer to these questions is yes.
