If the date and time is more than a certain amount out, I thought that 
NTP would refuse to start?  Is the date from the GPS receiver correct? 
Some older receivers had a GPS week roll-over issue.  To get the date 
right, I would add some Internet servers perhaps via the POOL directive 
as a sanity check:

   # UK pool servers
   pool  uk.pool.ntp.org	 iburst

Choose your appropriate region, of course, or just use:

   pool  pool.ntp.org  iburst

There's a way to get NTP to force a date and time setting at start-up, a 
command parameter: "-g".  See:


Maybe you already have that set?
