Server uptime discrepancy

I have a major concern. We have two Linux RH 7.3 (soon to be updated to 9.0) web servers. I recently enabled mod_status on Apache to give me a quick detail of what the servers are working on. On one of the servers, the server uptime on mod_status and top coincide perfectly. On the other server, top shows an uptime of 89 days (which should be correct), but mod_status shows this:

Current Time: Monday, 17-May-2004 10:04:54 EDT
Restart Time: Sunday, 16-May-2004 04:03:06 EDT
Parent Server Generation: 15
Server uptime: 1 day 6 hours 1 minute 48 seconds
1 requests currently being processed, 18 idle servers

Why would it show an uptime of only 1 day? Server signature is turned off on this particular server. Could that have an affect on this reading? Is it possible this is a compromised box?

Thanks for any light anyone can shed.

I can't remember what version of kernel this affected but older versions of the kernel rolled the days over (started back at zero) on thier uptime.

Thanks for some light.

Still seems odd to me because both boxes are identical in kernel, apache, and other critical software versions.
