Peter,

That is exactly how I would expect NT to react. How is one OS image supposed
to know that another has already done the time adjustment? Correct me if I'm
wrong, but I don't think that NT was ever designed for an installation that
included multiple images per machine. In fact, I'd be surprised to learn of
any OS out there that would have handled it correctly in your particular
example.
