Hey Won,

I've noticed some timestamps like that on some of my machines before.
The previous times I've noticed it, the system is storing an invalid
date (and subsequently ipmi-sel converts it to the appropriate local
time).  I assume it's some hardware issue.

If you do a --debug and grep for "timestamp".  You can see if some of
the timestamps are *way* off from the other ones.
