Freerunner looses the date when battery is away for short time

When I remove the battery from my FR, for example to change the SIM, it
looses now(?) the date in hwclock and starts with 01.01.2000; I have to
set the date and time again with 

root at om-gta02 ~ # ntpdate -b
 9 Apr 08:47:01 ntpdate[842]: step time server offset 387268904.770664 sec
root at om-gta02 ~ # hwclock --systohc
root at om-gta02 ~ # date
Mon Apr  9 08:47:16 CEST 2012

I don't remember if this was so from the beginning, though; isn't the
power for the hwclock backed-up for some time even without battery?

This is with SHR if it does matter, but I don't think so.
