I have a suggestion for a workaround. If you need the "current" timestamp in the format of, ls -iE, you could "touch" a file and read the ls -iE output and cut out the timestamp from there?
-bash-3.2$ touch /tmp/time -bash-3.2$ ls -iE /tmp/time 4204467824 -rw-r--r-- 1 brost portrix 0 2013-02-06 10:27:20.369465998 +0100 /tmp/time
