This issue is caused by an ubuntu domU kernel patch which uses the clock
of the hostsystem.
I did some similar by chmod 000 /etc/init.d/hwclock*
which isn't a clean solution but works also.

A clean solution would be to patch the hwclock scripts to look for e.g.
/proc/xenbus . I would file a bugreport, but I assume I'm unable to handle
launchpad.net ...
