Still exists (kernel 2.6.30)

Yep, that's the case here.

Now it gets confusing. If I stop acpid, then the bug still exists now. I
haven't tried freshly booting without allowing acpid to start.
I could have sworn this was the case in the past, and now I can't find
any processes running that I would point a suspicious finger towards.
Also, it doesn't happen on a nearly identical install (but concievably I
could have hacked acpi in a different way there) on a differnt dell laptop
(dell vostro 1710 doesn't change its clock, whereas an dell inspiron 1520
Well, I don't know that this is an acpid bug, but damned if I know what's
at fault, and my workaround still works...
