Goofy file dates with smbfs

I am testing smbfs and am getting goofy dates when listing the
imported directory from a Samba server:

bestia:~# smbmount //zeus/eparis -c 'mount /mnt' -U eparis
Added interface ip= bcast=
Server time is Wed Jan 21 14:26:10 1998
Timezone is UTC-4.0
Domain=[RAV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 1.9.18p1]
bestia:~# ls -ld /mnt
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 512 May 25 2037 /mnt/
bestia:~# smbumount /mnt

(I listed the mount point but all files in the /mnt directory have
dates in the 21st century)

Client Info:

Linux 2.1.80
smbfs utilities from Samba 1.9.18p1
This is a 100% libc6 system

Server Info:

Linux 2.0.33
Samba 1.9.18p1 running
libc5 system

I've seen some discussions regarding wrong dates in NT servers but I
didn't follow it.

I must say that I have just mounted a Windows 95 share and the dates
are also incorrect (year 1969).

Is there anything I can do to fix this?
