btw, while checking results of nightly DST change I re-sync-ed one of my boxes
to ntp server with rdate and got
Oct 28 10:32:48 sas dovecot: Time just moved backwards by 1099 seconds. This
might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now.
1099 seconds is ~18 minutes
How much is too much for dovecot?
Do you think using -a on rdate would not cause such effect?
-a Use the adjtime(2) call to gradually skew the local time to the
remote time rather than just hopping.
