[ndnSIM] leaky bucket start time

I see your point. Such kind of synchronization could lead to some
simulation artifacts. But I believe this should be taken care of by the
users. They should be aware of this (such synchronization problems could
happen in any simulator) and incur some randomness in their simulation
My concern with the current implementation is that the leak start time is
randomly picked between 0s and 1s. It is fairly possible that lots of
packets have already been sent before the leak start time. These packets
may get stuck in the network because the bucket didn't start leaking when
it should have. This might not be a big issue most of the time but did
cause me some headache in some particular setup.
