Retrospect keeps asking me if my clock is set wrong

All of a sudden Retrospect (v4.3) on my MacOS 8.1 Basilisk II setup started asking me if my clock or calendar is set wrong. Them it displays date and time, which look just fine, and once I confirm the program runs as normal.
It didn't use to do that and its bugging me - does anyone know why its doing that now?

Are you sure it's Retrospect and not the Mac OS?

The changeover dates for the silly Summer Time / Winter Time have changed in some countries since the days of the old versions of Mac OS. I know when I was still using my old beige G3 as my daily Mac, I had to manually alter the system time due to a change in the official start / end dates, and that caused the OS a bit of confusion. I would alter the time on the new changeover date, the OS would then alter it on the old changeover date and I'd have to re-alter it back to being correct.

Basilisk doesn't allow you to alter the clock and/or calendar. Both values are "hard glued" to the underlying system's clock. And yes it, must be Retrospect doing that, as its the only app complaining.
