 > #20426 has historical context. However, we did not set `-Wl,--no-insert-
 timestamp` back then. So, I am wondering whether doing that now would work
 and help with this ticket.

 This bug got so annyoing in my dev workflow that I wrote a fix for it and
 tested the result. I still get reproducible output without using
 `faketime` here. `bug_29731_v2` (https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk
 has a fix for review.

 Note: macOS is affected by the same problem and I'll open a separate bug
 for that. However, that's not as problematic for me right now as I usually
 don't build macOS nightly bundles in my setup.
