Sounds like it might be hard or impossible to fix to me.  I'd love to
be proved wrong though!

If you were thinking of passing time.time() /
clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) along in the Queue too, then you'll
want to know that it can differ by significant amounts on different
processors :-(

Good luck!
