Sigh-- you're right, you should have mentioned this before.
One should not attempt to change the clock from within a virtual
machine at all, only in the parent or host OS. VMs depend on the
host OS to provide the timekeeping, and it is known that systems
running inside a VM may experience timing glitches as a result of
running inside the machine emulation.
