I seriously question if this is the case. The NT filesystem internals
would not go to disk to fetch the timestamp if it was already cached in
RAM waiting to be flushed. Perhaps there is another explanation for
what you observed. In any case it took me more than 30 seconds to
write the log message, so I don't think something like that is related
to my problem, and I'm using the NTFS filesystem anyway.
