Is it an element of the data or is it an artifact?
This kind of gets in to your Schema design and taking short cuts. You may want to instead
create a data element or column containing the time stamp rather than rely on an HBase internal
time stamp. 

Or you could increase the existing time stamp by 1 ns... ;-)
(Blame it on clock drift in your cluster? Of course we don't know the significance of the
time stamp ... Or how often the row is un/re deleted... 1000 times and you'd be off by a whole
