Timer: time has moved forwards!

I am using TightVNC viewer 2.7.10 connected to server running on VMware hosted RHEL50 environment. In my xterms I get a continuously repeating message every few seconds:

Timer: time has moved forwards!

This must happen a lot. Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

Depending on how fast the time is moving, it would sound like an incorrect clock HZ value being used (such as using a 100Hz value when the actual clock is 1000Hz.
