rdate outputs “Alarm Clock”

I run rdate every night to sync the clock and recently, it kept failing. I tested it manually, and found that when I ran “rdate -p” it kept outputting “Alarm Clock”. I had to update rdate from source (http://freshmeat.net/redir/rdate/8862/url_tgz/rdate-1.4.tar.gz) and it works fine now. (and this was on RedHat 9)
