Is it okay to reset the clock on a Subversion server?

The system clock on my Subversion server is 1 hour fast. It's not a DST
thing, the clock is genuinely wrong.

I think the original administrator may have done this deliberately because
he did not like the fact that Subversion's timestamps are in GMT.

Whatever. I now want to fix it.

Only problem is, I can think of several bad things that might happen if I
set the clock back by an hour. Can anyone tell me if it is safe to do this,
or if the worst I can expect isn't too bad?

For instance, if Subversion won't accept checkins until the time on the
wall-clock is later than the timestamp on the head revision, then that is
pretty harmless, I just have to do it in quiet time.
