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.
