Which application or which program is creating files with an empty mtime?
Do you using xcopy bei any chance? A user of samba 3.15.pre2 has the
same problem with a mapped network drive using xcopy to copy files from
an novell server to the mapped drive. If the copying user is not the
owner of a directory with already existing files and 'dos filemode = no'
for the share, xcopy failes with 'access denied' while changing the
mtime for the directory containing the files.
