I'd suggest monkeypatching bobobase_modification_time on the objects 
you're testing with. You're testing your cache code, not the 
implementation of those objects, so replacing them with (partially) 
dummy objects is great for avoiding this kind of problem and is a 
pattern I've used frequently...
