Interesting.  This is reported booting dom0, correct?  Are
you running NTP in dom0?

Tim, do you suppose this is an extreme example of the NTP
interaction bug you fixed here:

No, it is good to raise awareness of these issues until they
are all fixed.  ESPECIALLY if you see time problems in xen-unstable,
it would be good to get them fixed before 3.4 is final.

Just an observation, to whom it may concern: when booting between 3.3.1 and
current xen-3.4-unstable, right after loading powernow-k8, there will be one 
Time went backwards messages (500ms upt to 1,5s), which disappears unless
you change Xen version again.

BTW: If I get on your nerves with my time keeping issues, just drop a note and 
I keep calm ;-).
