I have to disagree here. I am using VMware Server 2, and I have also
used VMware Workstation.  Both of those show big issues with
timekeeping if best practices are not followed, and neither of them
support vmotion, and I rarely suspend running servers.  I'm not sure
if you've seen the VMware whitepaper on timekeeping, but they don't
mention either of those things as the cause of the problem.
