Hmm... a modified version of your command paints a completely different
picture:

{ while true; do touch t; ls -l --full-time t; done; } | uniq

prints exactly *two* lines per second, one every 0.5 second, exact down
to the millisecond.
No idea why yet, but this explaines everything I guess. Asking Google...
