My 2c says thata Alan de Kock is right.
Nas is buggy.

What happens on the Nas is probably the following....
(This is a wild guess)

1) Nas boots, time is set to 1970.
2) User logs in, and Nas stores "start time" internally.
3) NTP on the Nas eventially figures out what the time is.
4) Next time the Nas calculates the Session time, it is 43 years.

I must say I am unsure how I would do it differently if I was the Nas 
software developer.....
