Once a minute.

Is the time jump you see on all machines constant? Could you run
"while true; date; sleep 1; done" so that we can see what the
exact warp is. [it would be very interesting, for example, if it
always turned out to be 71 minutes 35 seconds, which is 2^32

Is it definitely the act of shutting down the domU that causes
the problem? What if you just destroy the domain?

It seems unlikely that memory size is involved, but the whole
thing is weird...
