I am a new member of this mailing list and -- quite naturally --
I come with a problem. I have posted the message below to the
bug tracking system (on Oct. 21) but up to now I have not yet
received any response. I hope, however, that someone of this
mailing list can offer some help:

> We are using Samba in a NT Domain with a NT 4.0 PDC
> and a NT 3.51 BDC and many NT workstations.
> When trying to update a Linux Samba Server 
> (Kernel 2.0.36) from 1.9.18p3 to 2.0.5a we noticed that
> files copied from the PDC or BDC to the Samba server
> were given the access date (from the origin) instead of the
> modify date. Files copied from another Samba server (1.9.18p3)
> or an NT workstation (4.0) however were given the correct
> date.
> The Samba Server was integrated into the NT domain and was
> configured with "security = domain".
> (This is not the "dos filetimes" problem, since the atuhenticated
> user and the file owner was the same.)
