It's always the same time. UTC - 6 hours.
But it's not a problem of fpc or the functions, it must be a problem of 
the Linux Ditribution.

On Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop the time is correct.
I use a system based on Ubuntu Server 8.04 and get a wrong time.

Does someone know what system components are relevant for the time 
functions ?
Perhaps the system i use has something missing.

Btw. the linux date command shows the correct time, of course.
