> These tests create timestamps from Unix time, but this is done as int math with the result
stored in a long. This means that if the test is run at certain times, like 1505177731, corresponding
to Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 12:55:31, the test can have two timestamps separated by a
single second that reverse their ordering when multiplied by 1000000, such as 1505177731 ->
2147149504 and 1505177732 -> -2146817792. This causes a variety of test failures, since
it changes the reconciliation order of these cells.
> Note that I've tagged this as trivial because the problem is in the manual construction
of timestamps in the test; I know of nowhere  that we make this mistake with real data.
