Comment (by grepfor):

 I don't know, I've not attempted to reproduce it since the original
 report.  If you can suggest a way that I can try to reproduce it by filing
 some sort of "test" tickets that don't wind up annoying people, I'll be
 glad to do so and report what I find.

 As for the snarky phrase "very important": Time skews between servers and
 underlying databases are not necessarily without consequences: Makefiles,
 database consistency checks, date/time related queries can all be affected
 in subtle ways by time skews. I reported the issue because it is something
 that I would have wanted to know about if I were an administrator of such
 a system.

 The ticket was filed with priority "normal", then reverted to "minor". Per
 the definitions of ticker priority defined here


 "normal" has no definition at all, and "minor" is defined as:

   "Bugs about things like spelling errors, "mp2" instead of "mp3" being
 shown and such.  Feature requests about things few people want or which do
 not make a big difference."

 In view of the above, I see no grounds for implying in a seemingly
 sarcastic way that the issue was considered to be "very important". Can
 you suggest a more constructive course of action upon noticing a problem,
 however minor, than filing a ticket on it?

 If you can't make any such constructive suggestion, then let me suggest to
 you to avoid snarky comments to bug reporters who are trying, in whatever
 tiny way such as this, to contribute something of value or point out a
 potential problem.
