Now that you've jogged my memory, I remember coming across a Knowledge Base
article around a year ago that discussed this filesystem timestamp
granularity. I can't recall the reason for it, or the set of circumstances
under which it's an issue, but maybe this article touches on the issue long
enough to be of relevance:
My hunch is that this is happening because I'm dealing with NTFS5 on Win2K
and NTFS4 on NT4.
