The epoch is upon me.

OK. I was a little confused about the mention of 2 super caps at the
time. That make more sense.
I'll have to check for an American source and get one. I've got some
rusty soldering skills I can brush up before I attack my phone.

I'm don't know how you can be sure the clock battery is to blame, but I
just wanted to mention that I replaced the battery with a single
supercap.  The pair of supercaps was because I have two freerunners.

	The last time my FreeRunner's battery died, the clock reset to
epoch. Now, it no longer keeps time during suspend either. I'm guessing
this means the clock battery has finally died.
	Someone recently commented that they replaced their battery with
a pair of super caps. I just wanted to confirm my diagnosis before I
take a soldering iron to my phone.
