That's interesting, should this behaviour be expected from a stable system?
Of what kind was the random mismatch?

I think it might actually have to do with the timestamps and permissions on the files.  When you tar an archive, the timestamps and permissions on the files once they are untared are preserved.  I think there is an argument you can give cp ( -p, preserve? ) to preserve permissions and timestamps. 

Does anyone want to try and see if that is it? :)
