Or then, maybe not.

Does the bug happen on a clean run (that is, when there is no
timestamp)? in which case 'rm ${stampsdir}/*' before running
crond and it should trigger instantly (or in the very first
minutes of execution).

Or does it only appear after several iterations? in which case the
libfaketime trick can help.

(also if it is a libc bug; libfaketime will hide it. but i don't
think it's a libc bug anyway; it's unlikely that a libc bug in
those areas would affect dcron *only*).
