[mythtv-users] Fedora 7 clock drift

I am wondering if any Myth users have been seeing clock-drift with Fedora 7. I 
was wondering what was going on when my evening recordings began to start 
noticeably late. For years I have used ntpdate to sync my clock at 1 minute 
after 4am and log the result. On my Myth box pre-Fedora 7 the time difference 
was around 0 - usually -0.7 seconds. The day I upgraded I started logging 
differences of 12 seconds, every single day. I _vaguely_remember reading 
something about this happening in recent kernels (when the CPU governor is 
used) but no amount of Googling turns up any similar references.

Anyone else noticed this? I started noticing when the 11pm news started 
getting about 10 seconds clipped off the front.
