I would recommend that you run the testcase on a filesystem that
supports and records subsecond timestamps, and that the file is
created at a moment where the subsecond part is not 0. When in doubt,
use touch(1) to apply some subseconds, but usually, just running it
will create it at a non-zero subsecond with a high probability.
