Perhaps something similar can happen on *nix? Eg. Perhaps the systems clock runs fast, and if NTP updates the time, making the clock step back between timestamps, you get the result you are seeing.
If that is the cause, you'd expect it to happen at most once per NTP update frequency. (Which should be checkable.)
