One of my PCs did not update either -- the others did.  And yes, I also have it
set to auto-adjust.  There is one difference on the PC which did not adjust
itself:  the taskbar properties are set to not include the clock.  I have no
idea if this has any bearing on it.

I've witnessed enough problems with this "feature" over the years to wonder how
much time it really saves...

Another thing to bear in mind: WinNT stores all file timestamps in GMT, then
displays them in your local time by applying the current GMT offset.  So now
that we are in Daylight time, remember that timestamps for files last touched
during Standard time really happened an hour different than what it now
reports...
