hi jeroen, steve,

if i understand correctly, there are two issues:

- offset of zero being treated as an error
- usage of ntpdate

for the former, i believe this issue is resolved in the latest version
of ntp.  for the latter, is using ntpdate really a problem?  jeroen:
you claim that ntpdate is deprecated, but is it?  afaik it's still quite
useful in many situations, including this case.

you're talking to someone who's also on upstream :)  in fact, i'd much
rather deal with bugs in the debian bts then the POS sourceforge
tracker, and then migrate them to upstream cvs in one big batch later on.

i'll include this patch in the next update.
