problem setting time with net time

Applies to samba 2.0.5a, windows NT and Windows 95/98 clients

In the logon script, I use the following

net time \\server /set /yes

so that all the machines have the same time, synchronised with the server.
This has been working fine until about a week ago, when occasionally some of
the clients seem to get there time set to a date in March 2000. This problem
is intermittent, it doesnt happen very often....

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham
