Hi Ralph,

You are talking about windows as host OS. imho broken by design.

Linux on occasion changes too fast for ntp, a known issue.

But Windows seems to be a constantly changing but unimprooving PITA
going by what percolated through this ng.

so it would have ben a nice thing to have started your initial
post with :

	ntv v4.2....
on	Mandriva $mversion linux kernel 2.6...
in a 	VM from $vendor
hosted on $windows_version.

from my vantage point having "new" problems inside a VM
has a good chance of being caused by the VM and nothing else.
