Clock loses synchronization

I am running a Windows XP host with multiple Linux guests, including Arch Linux and Ubuntu. I do not know whether or not this bug affects other hosts and guests. I have installed Guest Additions on all affected guests.
Currently the clock falls out of sync after a guest is paused and resumed. The time remains the same as when the guest was paused. Resetting the guest does not fix the issue -- the guest must be completely shut down and manually started again. Also, the same issue manifests when the machine state is saved and then restored.
I would expect the Guest Additions to detect whenever the machine is restored from a paused or saved state and set the time accordingly.
