   It's not the hardware clock rate that is a problem.  The time on the
two systems (as given by the date command) differs.  Since you are using
NFS, when you write a file the timestamp is written by the server, If
the server's clock is ahead of the clients then when the client comes to
read the mtime field it finds it is in the future. 

   Set the time to be the same on both systems.

   Presumably because he is using a GUI editor?  An xterm with a
screen-based editor woudl be Ok.
