Vista Poisoning My Clock??? – Pt 2

Vista Poisoning My Clock??? – Pt 2

Click here for the story so far.

So, today I turned on my computer at 11:44, booted into Vista, simply to check the time (correct) then rebooted into Linux -> the time shown was 11:36 – a loss of 8 minutes during the reboot.  The time on the hardware clock /sbin/hwclock –show was also 11:36.  So, presumably somehow in the reboot process from vista-> linux something is resetting the hardware clock – but more weird, the change is not consistent across reboots (different reboots result in a different change in time).
