[collectd] Strange Time value in notification test

I have configured a simple test notification using the Exec plugin. This works, however, the Time value in the notification message is changed into something strange (1.307) - can anyone suggest why this is happening?

root at croaker:~# cat /etc/collectd/collectd.conf
LoadPlugin exec

<Plugin exec>
         NotificationExec "www-data" "/srv/www/notify.sh"
         Exec "www-data" "/srv/www/test.sh"

root at croaker:~# cat /srv/www/test.sh

MESSAGE="Some random text"
TIME=`date +%s`

LINE="PUTNOTIF message=\"$MESSAGE\" severity=$SEVERITY time=$TIME"

echo "$LINE" >> /tmp/out.txt

echo "$LINE"

root at croaker:~# cat /srv/www/notify.sh

echo "$(cat)" >> /tmp/out.txt

root at croaker:~# tail -n 5 /tmp/out.txt
PUTNOTIF message="Some random text" severity=warning time=1403113649
Severity: WARNING
Time: 1.307

Some random text

I am running collectd 5.1.0 (Debian Wheezy).
