Last night the spring clock time changes happened.

RPCEmu 0.8.15 RISC OS 4.02, 4.39, 6.20, 5.23.

As per usual, for as long as I can remember, ALL my RPCEmu installs that
use Organizer were Organizer wise FU.
Organizer failed to run because of some file time stamp failure with its

So I as per usual, for as long as I can remember I have to reinstall
Organizer again, and I'll have to do it again in the autumn...

Now, some of you are going to say, But Dave it's an Organizer problem, not
a RPCEmu problem.

Wrong! I've discussed this with Martin over the years...


VRPC any of the versions I have and RISC OS 4.02 or 6.20 all run Organizer
without problems after the event.

I know VRPC gets its time from the Host OS (Windows), but RPCemu is
another matter.

VRPC is half a second behind the Windows clock (Updated daily)
RPCEmu is three seconds behind the Windows clock.

So to the bottom line question.

Why is RPCEmu causing this problem, and how to fix it.
