My preference is to just eliminate them since the page is big enough as it is
-- even on a big monitor...

Following the link I see the following timestamps:
Report Time: Sun, 01 May 2005 16:15:18 +0000
Linker output [2005-04-30 22:23:11 UTC]:
Run output [2005-05-01 15:26:12 UTC]:
Isn't it possible that the link step didn't rerun from a previous build and so
only the run step was updated? Otherwise I would agree that you would expect
the link and run steps to be closer together.
