Indeed. I just noticed that my 2.0.32 system is screwing up
timestamps on files on an NT server. I had never noticed this
before on 2.0.29 or 2.0.30. Is it possible that something has
changed with smbfs since 2.0.29, or did I just never notice
the problem before?

Bill Hawes suggested going to 2.1.79 as a solution (which
I don't mind doing) but I will probably run into resistance
from management and that is always frustrating.
