Your kernel was compiled with the win95 date bug workaround. That
workaround messes up dates when looking at NT shares. Recompile your
kernel without the workaround enabled or upgrade to a later 2.2.x where
the the workaround is enabled dynamically per share, as needed.

I don't know if upgraded RH kernel-rpm's have this fixed or not.
