if you tell the explorer in details view to show all file dates (acess, 
changed, creation) are they different or all identical?

Never had any trouble with this, but you could mount your ext2 file 
system with the noatime option. But this should not be necessary because 
the difference between access and changed date is known to windows and 
unix. Which samba version do you use?
