Strange xcopy between Windows and Linux

I tried adding "dos filetimes" and restarting the server. No
My smb.conf -
server string = %h server (Samba %v)
encrypt passwords = Yes
obey pam restrictions = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
syslog = 3
max log size = 1000
socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
dns proxy = No
invalid users = root
hosts allow = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0
<... [homes] section deleted ...>
path = /mnt/missile
read only = No
dos filetimes = Yes
This is the command which will make Windows want to
(incorrectly) overwrite some files -
xcopy /d /e d:\Pic\*.* w:\Pic\*.*
Here are two snapshots of Windows 2000 file property dialogs.
File in dialog set 1 copies when it shouldn't. Set 2 is okay,
although note that the file time is incorrectly advanced by 1
set 1: http://www.robotattack.com/smb_dialogs_copy.jpg
set 2: http://www.robotattack.com/smb_dialogs_no_copy.jpg
Also - probably unrelated, but note the "Size on disk" in both
pictures. On the server side, the usage is off by three orders
of magnitude. Is this an error on my part?
