Ya, that was it.  I fixed the sys clock then wrote it to the hwclock
and rebooted and it seems to be correct now, thanks!

So the big mystery is why is the Fedora shutdown not writing the
correct time to the hwclock?  I too thought that was automatic.  I've
never had this problem on other Fedora systems.  Anyone know what
program/rpm/script is responsible for this?  Some quick greps of etc
aren't finding me anything.
