vmware freebsd time or clock runs slow or fast

With FreeBSD and VMware as a guest os the system time seems to run slow.
Installing vmware tools doesn't fix the problem but editing /boot/loader.conf does!

# vi /boot/loader.conf

hint.apic.0.disabled=1

save, reboot

update the system time
root@domain ~ # /usr/sbin/ntpdate 2.fedora.pool.ntp.org
