according to email from the developer, they did this:

 * Deal with the fact that Debian's boot sequence bogusly doesn't set the
     time correctly until very late in the boot process; so if the
     superblock's last mount or write time is in the future, don't treat
     this as a fatal error.  (Closes: #343662, #343645)

so I doubt that it broke anything else in the workaround, but we'll see.
