I have the same problem with my machine. It can lose hours at a time, but
the misalignment is only associated with the display -- the widget in the
system tray. The CMOS clock is still well-aligned and I just need to
refresh the clock daemon manually on occasions.
Having said that, this only happens to me when I run heavy computation on my
machine. Sometimes the memory gets used up entirely in the process. Are you
doing anything resource-consuming?
