dovecot: Time just moved backwards

Post by beatgr » 05 Feb 2009, 18:54

Concern with this from syslog entry (dovecot)?
Due to time set to local North American timezone
Feb 5 17:45:00 bubba dovecot: Time just moved backwards by 25185 seconds. This might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now.
Feb 5 17:45:16 bubba /USR/SBIN/CRON[5111]: (root) CMD (test -x /usr/bin/php && /usr/bin/php /usr/share/horde3/scripts/alarms.php)
Feb 5 17:50:01 bubba /USR/SBIN/CRON[5114]: (root) CMD (test -x /usr/bin/php && /usr/bin/php /usr/share/horde3/scripts/alarms.php)

Yes, this is a known issue, when time warps, dovecot dies. A restart of Bubba or a restart of the mail service (uncheck + check in the services menu) will solve the issue.

We have it reported as a bug and will fix it in an upcoming release.
