Having a dead battery, system clock resets to it's initial value only  
when I:
1. Turn off the power
2. Plug off power cord for a while, i.e. when I take the computer to  
a different location. 5 minutes is enough.

Simple restart is not enough. System clock is running like the  
circuit that lets to turn on machine "softly" - with power button on  
the keyboard.

If you use oldworld machine and need to boot the old Mac OS system  
before running BootX, you can expect the machine to "forget" where is  
the startup volume too.

With these information you should quickly find if battery needs to be  
replaced.

Bartek
