[ntp:questions] auto overwritten /etc/ntp.conf?

Hi, I'm trying to see if anyone has had a weird problem with /etc/ntp.conf.
Every once in a while, mine gets overwritten! I've seen this happen various
times on slackware 8.x/9.x (don't know about other distros, this is all I
use). The version currently in use on 9.1 is 4.1.2, but i'm sure 8.x must
have had older versions, and 8.x did exhibit similar behavior.
I have no idea what triggers the change (ntpd, ntpdate, etc) or when it
happens. It seems that sometimes it can happen in a matter of days, and
sometimes it can go for months (unless I just didn't notice until late here).
The new ntp.conf only has about 7 lines in it: a few restrict lines, a server
line, driftfile, logfile, etc. Strangely, the server line will always be set
to 127.127.1.0. Does this sound familiar at all to anyone? This is getting
to be _very_ frustrating.
Thanks for any help.
