Found it. My memory is becoming shorter and shorter!

That's where mine is now. I notice that the clocks of emuleated RO 4.39,
5.20 and 6.20 all trail the Win7 clock by one or two seconds, suggesting
that 'Set manually' causes the time to be read from the host OS. This
corresponds with my earlier understanding, but I'm at a loss as to how,
a few days ago, emulated 5.20 was more than an hour adrift, which set me
off on this particular excursion.

If, indeed, 'Set manually' causes the time to be read from the host OS,
thus making 'Set from the net' unneccessary, and unwise, perhaps a note
to this effect needs to be added to the User Manual?
