The 0 timestamp at start of cracking is on purpose.  Should we log
increasing timestamps first, then reset to 0 at start of cracking
anyway?  That would be weird.

And we can't log negative timestamps leading to 0 at the start of
cracking since we don't know how long the loading will take in advance.
