System time drifts from realtime far away

Description

The systemtime goes wrong with 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 as VM. Host system is OSE svn near r2405 gentoo amd64, VM is 32bit linux with a 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 kernel.

The hwclock is ok, but the systemtime drifts for ex. after 5 hours 7 minutes away from the realtime. powernow-k8 on host is enabled. The systemtime on the host is ok.

Is this a known bug?

A workaround is to run a cron job every hour or with the command "hwclock -s" to set the system time from hardware clock. I don't know what windows does, but this could be there a problem too.

This should be better now. For proper time syncing you should either sync with a time server or install the guest additions.
