I haven't checked the build history but assuming this is not in-of
itself a nondetermistic distinction (in which I would blame the hash
table usage) then this is likely due to filesystem ordering. Indeed if
you look at gtk/updateiconcache.c src:gtk+3.0 then, after a quick
skim, both of these things are apparent in this file.

Anyway, I've added this issue and bug to the Reproducible Builds
"notes" git repository:

… and tagged the src:balsa package with this issue:

(Very rough and ready of course, but even this approximate tagging
is very helpful to us.)
