Yes, Derrell, this patch solves the problem. However, there is a tiny  
error in the patch. In cli_getattrE, the function calls for a_time and  
c_time are to make_unix_date2, whereas for m_time it is to make_unix_date,  
which gives the wrong value for the modified time. If you change this to  
make_unix_date2, as I did, you will find everything works fine. So, I  
guess the patch does work.
