I think the second power down in there resets the date.

I'm using a python hack that shows both the T2 time string and the status 
page.  When I set the date, the status page shows the new date.  The T2 date 
doesn't change.  When the GPS gets synced up, the T2 date and status page 
date both jump to goodness.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
