Yeah, time bomb!

Somehow, it is a know issue:

As Julien pointed, replacing the date of the host system can fix such
issue.  Somehow, one idea is to use ‘datefudge’ to detect such time
bomb and/or maybe fake an older time to pass some tests… but I am not
aware of any attempt to tackle these time bomb.

Aside, from my point of view, the 4 assumptions for time traveling with
Guix are:

 1. source code availability
 2. Linux kernel compatibility
 3. hardware compatibility
 4. no time bomb

and a lot of work remains for insuring a kind of validity of these.
