On reflection, I strongly suspect the errors come from the way I was using
file modification time stamps to manage a user-side configuration file.
{targets} was using a time stamp to decide whether it needs to read the
file, but the precision of time stamps varies from system to system. I
implemented a workaround that avoids time stamps.
