Wrong System Time in OS/2 Guest

There is a problem with the "Guest Additions TimeSync Service" for OS/2 when using the long format for the TZ environment variable on the guest like


I've posted a detailed description to the forum, please see this thread.

The problem seems to be an issue in the underlying libc, see the replies from user LewisR in the same thread and especially here and there.

A workaround is to start vboxservice.exe with the "Guest Additions TimeSync Service" disabled.

Probably the Guest Additons for OS/2 should be liked against a fixed version of libc once it gets available.

Thank you,
