Others here have mentioned the file /etc/default/rcS and I remembered
on one of my machines, I took a backup of /etc before doing the
upgrade.  Indeed, /etc/default/rcS *did* change and after looking at
it more carefully, I remember all of my upgrades asked me to compare
my original file and the system provided one and to approve the
overwrite.  I guess I only looked at 2-3 files (not sure about you?),
but this was certainly one of them in all cases.

In /etc/default/, you probably have a rcS and a rcS.dpkg-old (guess
the /etc backup was unnecessary).  You can compare them; indeed, UTC
has changed from no to yes.

I looked at the package's ChangeLog at:

and I honestly can't see anything relevant...  Perhaps this is the problem?

I'm going to keep looking before I change its value.  Maybe even wait
and see if others are complaining about the upgrade first.  :-)
