Comment 3 lihuang 2010-07-13 06:08:44 EDT
Hi Daniel

I guess you only care the clock setting in the xml file:)

it is :
<clock offset='utc'/>
Yes. the tick policy is not configrated. (guest is installed from virt-manager. and only "Clock Offset" cound be set from GUI ) 

According to http://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2010-March/msg00304.html
change to :
  <clock offset='utc'>
    <timer name='pit' tickpolicy='delay'/>

then the option is present.So it is not a bug . at least not libvirt's issue.

So maybe it's within virt-manager
