 Haven't looked at the change yet, but there's a related other isssue:
 the fact that the ASCII logging currently outputs less than 6 digits
 after the comma for timestamps that end in zeros, can make the output
 hard to read because subsequent columns aren't aligned. We should
 change that so that it always print the same number of digits.
