Absent timestamps in the Messages window, because the messages largely repeat for each run, it's difficult to tell with confidence which run a particular series of messages pertains to.

If timestamps are useful on your output you can always add them by using
Logger.Logger, adding them to your print statements, etc.
You can clear messages between runs by right clicking, programmatically
from your program mark the start of a run in some way or you can select
the options button on the Debug IO tab and select "Auto-clear when debug
starts" to make sure that you only have the output from a single session.
