I haven't seen any cases where it's earlier, but I haven't been paying
attention.

I just tried SAVOBJ, SAVLIB & SAV on V5R1 and V5R3, and in all cases the
 timestamp in the first record was a few seconds later.

(I think the DSPSAVF timestamp comes from the record that contains the
CPU serial number.)

In the cases where it's earlier, is there any correlation with OS
release or SAV- command (or anything else)?

The only explanation I can think of would be if the two timestamps were
written by different LIC tasks whose relative timing was dependent on
system load.

Thanks a lot.

Strange how a timestamp appears in the save file first eight bytes, which,
when converted through QWCCVTDT API, is "close to" the time of the save
command shown on the DSPSAVF panel, but sometimes it's later by 2 or 3
seconds, and sometimes it's earlier by 2 or 3 seconds.

Any guess why this would be?
