Subject2.4.2 bug in handling vfat?
when I unmount and remount a vfat file system, the time stamp of a recently
created file changes by one hour.
This does not happen on the same system when running 2.2.17.

Script started on Mon Apr 9 13:59:26 2001
sh-2.03# uname -a
Linux tahiti 2.4.2 #7 Mon Mar 26 23:50:57 CEST 2001 i686 unknown
sh-2.03# touch /dos/fudge
sh-2.03# ls -l /dos/fudge
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr 9 13:59 /dos/fudge
sh-2.03# umount /dos
sh-2.03# mount /dos
sh-2.03# ls -l /dos/fudge
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr 9 14:59 /dos/fudge
The relevant fstab entry is:
/dev/hda1 /dos vfat noauto,umask=0,defaults 1 0

the clock was set after booting using clock -s -u

Is the descibed behaviour a known problem?
