remove ntp from the guest, it causes troubles.
also, search vmware kb for clock issues, the most common fixes are
removing ntp services from guest, installing tools on the guest and
selecting the clock synchronization (with the host).
another common pitfall is the "bitness" of host and guest: keep 32bit
hosts with 32bit guests and the same with 64bit, mixing them could raise
clock problems.
Long time ago I had the very same problem with a 64bit ubuntu host running
vmware server and a 32bit debian guest.

hope this helps,
