Some users have reported that the mixminion server has a nasty failure mode when
a server's clock moves backwards by a large interval. When the server asks
"when did we last (do something)", the answer "tomorrow" can cause crashes or
weird behavior.

I'm deferring this for a while, because (a) I want to get 0.0.5 put to bed, and
(b) the workaround is trivial: keep your clock set right.
