No traceback, because no exception.
I speak of a true rounding problem:
the image is modified at "x" (expressed in seconds)
Zope sends "x" converted to a date/time string as "Last-Modified"
Zope receives the date/time string back as "If-Modified-Since".
Zope converts it to a "long", say y.
*BUT* y is not x, it is "x-1".
Of cause, this does not happen for all modification times. But there
are not too few of them.
