Ticket #7520 (closed defect: duplicate)
Slow Guest Clock - Loses Time

Starting up a new ticket because there is no activity in the other one I found related to this issue ( http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/6842).
The guest clock loses time and becomes "slow" compared to the host clock. This is a major issue when you need to run chron processes and time based applications (Outlook in Windows, etc).
The log shows messages similar to the following: 02:37:29.485 TM: Giving up catch-up attempt at a 60 001 520 988 ns lag; new total: 1 320 045 030 155 ns 02:39:44.060 TM: Giving up catch-up attempt at a 60 001 425 426 ns lag; new total: 1 380 046 455 581 ns 02:41:30.315 TM: Giving up catch-up attempt at a 60 006 308 593 ns lag; new total: 1 440 052 764 174 ns
Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide to help resolve this issue.
