Clock is almost at a stand-still

Host: Solaris 10 U8 (10/09) Guest: CentOS 5.4, kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5 Guest additions installed: Yes
With a fresh install, the clock is going very very slowly in the guest os. I have tried different suggestions from this bug report: http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3135 but it seems they have the opposite problem, that the clock is going way too fast...
When trying these options to the kernel, the clock seems to work ok, but then the machine just dies after a few minutes with nothing in any logs: nmi_watchdog=0 elevator=deadline noapic nolapic divider=10 nolapic_timer clocksource=acpi_pm
After hours and hours of googling, I resort to open a bug report for this, and hope there is a solution for this problem, as I have to choose between having a machine that only stay on for a few minutes, or a clock that slows down 10 minutes per minute or so...
