[ntp:questions] nmea and initial large offset

I'm trying to setup an embedded system with ntpd and a gps device as reference clock.

Everyhing went fine when the clock is not too far away when i start ntpd.
But when the clock offset is big (1-1-1970 for example), the ntpd refuses to use the gps reference clock.

Using the "-g" option does not make any difference. 

I'm using ntpd 4.2.6p1

Does anybody know how to setup this ? (i have no lan connection, so an initial ntpdate is no option)
