out-of-order timestamps on a virtual machine are not uncommon. VMware 
ESX for example does not provide a stable timesource. Most know problems 
are clocks that are running too fast. Depending on your time 
synchronization ist is now possible that system time is set backwards. 
Many programms calculating time differences don't like that. Startup 
time faster then light speed anyone?
Also it is possible that a certain system time is skipped: when the 
system clock is too slow the VMware Tools can skip a period of time and 
set the current time.
We once had MySQL not closing idle-connections because the time this 
should happen was skipped.

You could try monitoring the system time in relation to a stable time 
source and check if there are any coherences.
