ah, yes, big time jumps do affect timing critical apps in a big
way. Check with the kh48 I have on my dir as that has the timer
reset code fixed.

The time jump should be logged but only once, the timer resets to
the new time and continues.   If you don't want the big jump in
the clock then you're best having the ntpdate called more frequently.
