Thanks Kirill,

   I have both virtualbox running in Arch, and I also have the original drive in 
this box that boots windows. The other 2 drives hold Arch. I have been running 
the box with the clock set to UTC in rc.conf and the cmos clock set to UTC. So, 
the localtime setting issue isn't an issue here or part of the problem.

   I just tried changing the cmos to localtime and setting localtime in rc.conf, 
and all seemed to work well, so I'm not sure what would break due to this lack 
of support for it. But all of the issues we have discussed with the whacky time 
resets have occurred with the time set to UTC. Dunno, still unanswered...
