 I guess that is not too surprising.
 Kathy and I looked at adding support for CLOCK_SKEW events a couple of
 months ago but then got interrupted with other work. But if I remember
 correctly, we found that Tor Launcher misses the CLOCK_SKEW event that
 happens early during tor startup for the same reason Tor Launcher misses
 other things: it is not connected to the control port yet. That means our
 best hope at the moment for fixing this problem is #21542 (which would
 allow Tor Launcher to capture log messages via stderr).
