You can work around this by editing the /etc/inittab file, putting the asktimerc command above the one that starts the license manager. This will require manually setting the time when rebooting.

I ran an old Pentium 90 here with that problem for almost six months,
before replacing it with a Caldera OpenLinux system, and during that
time I had a cron job that wrote out the current time and date to an
executable file in /etc hourly, then added a line to /etc/inittab to
execute that file before starting the license manager.  This allowed
unattended reboots.

It is necessary for the welfare of society that genius should be
privileged to utter sedition, to blaspheme, to outrage good taste, to
corrupt the youthful mind, and generally to scandalize one's uncles.
