I'll vote for "both".

While it could be a clock problem, and I would start with that.
Then install from a properly running similar system, a known good ps, top, ps, 
du, etc.. etc.. in an odd directory to poke around with. For example, 
compare the output of /clean/ps with /usr/bin/ps

Side note: On a fresh system I have often made a '/root/clean.zip'
wih what I consider the system debug essentials: ps, ls, ..
