ctime doesn't mean create. It means inode changes.
From the stat(2) man page.
The field st_ctime is changed by writing or by setting inode information (i.e., owner, group,
link count, mode, etc.).
Still doesn't explain why it's changing inode
info every 30 seconds though but I recall it
does make sure the permissions are r--------.
