Disabling time synchronization between guest and host in Microsoft Virtual PC

Microsoft Virtual PC synchronizes the time between the guest and host operating systems. This is great until you have the need to set the clock forward or backwards in your VM, as it snaps back to the current time after about 5 seconds. I went hunting through the options in the Virtual PC UI but didn't find anything related to disabling this option. A bit of googling later and I've got it disabled by adding a few lines of XML to the .vmc file.

Today I've been poking at Microsoft Exchange 2007 tracking logs, asking them the very simple question of 'How many emails have I sent?'. Unforunately, Exchange 2007 tracking logs are not used to simple questions, and are likely to return a complicated and / or misleading answer. But the confusion it seems, all comes down to definitions. Once you understand these definintions, things start to make a bit more sense.
