Well, that's not what we're seeing.

Any volume we create *today* on our OpenAFS servers has
the UNIX epoch as the create date.

Our entire cell is time-synched fine.

Performing the 'vos create' from an IBM AFS client or OpenAFS
client makes no difference.

bash-3.2$ vos create fs1 a fs1-a
Volume 2023883358 created on partition /vicepa of fs1
bash-3.2$ vos examine fs1-a
fs1-a                             2023883358 RW          2 K  On-line
     fs1.mitre.org /vicepa
     RWrite 2023883358 ROnly          0 Backup          0
