What you are asking is the same as completely removing test # 500.

The test is supposed to verify that some libcurl internal timestamps
are generated and properly ordered. When this doesn't happen the test
fails with the output you are seeing.

Reasons for #500 failure can be, some libcurl internal problem, badly
implemented time source function, not a good enough time function on
system, very fast machine, and probably others.
