What happens when I set the system time backwards???

I have written an application that is on a Time accurate box, if the time drifts the System clock is reset(forward and/or back). I have noticed that when I set the time forward the application doesn't care, However when I set the time back my app stops all threads and waits for the time to catch up to where it just was(be it a second or an hour). Back to the subject, what happens when the time is set backwards, is there any fix for what I'm experiencing?
Thanx in advance.
