"date" command halts the system

I don’t know if anyone else experienced the same problem but my system halts (reboots) after updating the System time using the “date -s” command.

In order to work around this issue, I’m creating custom functions that use stime instead of running “date” from bash.


Correction: stime() hangs the system too.

date -s works on my device. I did the following:

~ # date
Thu Jul 2 20:35:16 UTC 2009
~ # date -s 20:39:00
Thu Jul 2 20:39:00 UTC 2009
~ # date
Thu Jul 2 20:39:01 UTC 2009
~ #
