I have the same problem, the time on my system is very unstable, i'm using a sid client on a sarge host under vmware gsx, i have installed ntp, and after that i get the errror message, the time is running very slow, after 10 minutes real time, my system only counts 5 minutes.

Just disable Clock sync with the host and use NTP
