Date Change and other OS-errors. XP or RMS?

Since upgrading to RMS 1.3 we have encountered some really strange errors. The last one is the best. Right in the middle of the day, yesterday, ONE of our computers changed its own date from 12/30/06 to 12/15/06. Both dates showed up in the journal and the incorrect dates printed on several receipts.
Today, one of our computers changed its own date to 12/31/2007. I KNOW no one changed it.
Please, no jokes about the Y2K06 bug. Unless they're really funny.
Anyone else seeing anything like this happen since the 1.3 upgrade?
All our machines are running XP Pro with automatic update turned on. We run hardware and software firewalls, use AVG anti-virus protection, and Windows Defender (latest version).
Just crious.

This only happened once, Jeff. A battery is basically a go-no go device. If the motherboard battery actually failed (and I am running at least one computer which is older than the one that had the problem) I would have lost CMOS memory entirely.
Your take is that it is hardware-related. I agree that is a possibility, but with only that one weird time shift, it is difficult to rule out either OS or Software, especially since we have had several other RMS peculiarities since the 1.3 upgrade.
I appreciate the suggestion. If or when it happens again, I'll have a look at the motherboard.
