It would be a really crappy logger if the order of calls from a single
process wasn't preserved all the way down to the log entries. And as you
pointed out elsewhere, the time was grabbed in the trace() function, and
it was obviously later in the second logged line, since that lateness is
what you're asking about...

And resulting in *only* those two lines, nothing before and/or after?
I.e. it's not just that you're off-by-one when pairing up log entries?
And of course, both pids and logs may wrap... (not likely that your pids
wrapped though I guess).
