Non-sequential timestamps on 34980A data export

Has anyone else seen this particular bug?  I have been having difficulty exporting data to a file, so I've been letting the Datalogger software auto-export.  Looking back over the export files, I've begun to notice some discontinuities in the data; upon closer examination, I realized that the DATA was correct, but the TIMESTAMPS were out of order.  For example, the following appeared in the first column of my data, in exactly this order (emphasis added by me on the non-sequential portion):

2/13/2014 12:17:59:270
2/13/2014 12:18:00:470
2/13/2014 12:18:00:670
2/13/2014 12:18:00:870
2/13/2014 12:18:01:070
2/13/2014 12:18:01:270
2/13/2014 12:17:59:470
2/13/2014 12:17:59:670
2/13/2014 12:17:59:870
2/13/2014 12:18:00:070
2/13/2014 12:18:00:270

I am using a 34980A with a 34924A multiplexer, running the latest firmware, IO Libraries, and Datalogger versions as of 03 March.

Thanks!
