[OpenAFS] Last Update not updating?

Hi, all,

I'm seeing a strange behavior on Fedora Core 4, openafs 1.4.0.
I changed a file inside a volume, but the Last Update date
in the "vos exam <volname>" didn't change.

In the example below, I updated the file "etc.tgz" today,
Jan 9. The "vos exam" output shows a Last Update of
Jan 6. Has anyone else seen this behavior?

(openafs rpms were build from the src rpm in the usual
  way according to the instructions.)

Thanks in advance,
