That's what I have.  I guess it depends if your motherboard supports
month and day.  Do

# cat /proc/acpi/alarm

and copy the format of what comes out.

That looks right to me if you run your backend as root.  Because I don't, I have

sudo sh -c 'echo $time > /proc/acpi/alarm'

Sorry, I don't use mythwelcome.
