[SLE] SPAM: Emptied CMOS battery.

My mom uses a p2 system from 1998/99, running SuSE 8.2 Pro. Suddenly
her e-mails started to arrive to me with a date from the past and
seemingly the system clock works only, when the computer is turned ON
(= is under electricity). I never had such symptom, but thought that
when the CMOS battery is empty, the system clock is set to some stran-
ge 1970-like time everytime the system is turned on.
Maybe I'm wrong, but would help if someone would confirm that the
above symptom can be caused by (almost) empty mainboard-battery.
