I concur, about the one-hour shift anyway.  The random garbage times

It's a weird set of symptoms that rather looks as if they hit two different
failure modes at once.  Dunno.

One of our NTPsec devs posted the link on one of our project channels and
suggested maybe we ought to call M$ with an offer of help...
