Maybe ntp; something changing your system clock after boot time. Since it takes
time to occur (you said 60 sec is OK) then it very likely ntp as it takes at
least this long to start drifting the system clock toward UTC.

If it is ntp, you could use ntpdate to change the clock once before starting
erlang, but be warned this may be destructive to other components.

Waiting on ntpstat to indicate a "close enough" time match might be your most
reliable option.
