[Dovecot] Time just moved backwards

Hi there,
I got a daily cron (rdate to local time server) job wich adjusts time and
which constantly gives me headache.
Every day my dovecot suicides with:

"dovecot: Time just moved backwards by 11 seconds. This might cause a lot of
problems, so I'll just kill myself now."

Of course my onboard clock is constantly off by more than 5 secs.
I don't want
to abandon time synchronization and I want to use dovecot. Maybe a
-HUP signal would do? What do you propose?
