This has been hashed over several times in the Samba, Linux-kernel,
and RedHat lists. The RedHat stock 2.2.5 kernel was built incorrectly
with the WIN95 bug workaround enabled. This causes the bytes of the
timestamp to be reversed on Windows NT shares.
The solution, now, is to upgrade to the latest kernel (2.2.12),
which autodetects Windows 95 connections and switches the bug workaround
transparently, and the new smbmount from Samba 2.0.6. The compile time
option to the kernel which was incorrectly configured in the RedHat 2.2.5
kernel has now been removed from the kernel.
