date is off of system clock by about 9 minutes - cygcheck-svr.out (0/1)

This is a strange one.  Cygwin 1.7.9-1, coreutils 8.10-1.

Both 'date' and 'ls' show times that are ahead of the system clock by about 9
minutes, 24 seconds.  For example, at the moment my system clock shows 10:05
AM.  This agrees with the 'time' command in CMD:

C:\Documents and Settings\aschulma>time
The current time is: 10:05:42.05

But in Cygwin:

$ date
Mon, Sep 26, 2011 10:15:18 AM

$ touch /tmp/tst
$ ls -l /tmp/tst
-rw-r----- 1 ASchulma Administrators 0 Sep 26 10:15 /tmp/tst

cygcheck -svr output is attached.
