I'll try that.

Anyway, breaking setLastModified()/getLastModified() in order to fix 
copyTo() seems to be the wrong approach. If both calling sequence need 
different behaviours of the low-level date conversions, this 
definitively needs to be fixed differently.

I think we *do* know the correct behaviour for 
getLastModified()/setLastModified() -- it needs to be compatible with 
java.io.File (we had different tests posted to this list).
