User error: I thought ctime and mtime were synonyms. I will submit
a wishlist suggestion for the ls man page to clarify that there are 3
times (atime, ctime, and mtime) which may be displayed, and to clarify
which aliases (access, use, status) are associated with which xtime.

CP and CPIO are not properly preserving modification-time (using the
appropriate options) on my Debian sarge system (i686), upgraded from Woody,
and upgraded to the 2.6 kernel. CP and CPIO are each mangling atime and
ctime in different ways. Aptitude says the stuff I have installed is
current. Everything else I use seems to be working great with the upgrade,
and the 2.6 kernel really speeds things up. Is something subtle broken in
just my system, or is this actually a wider problem? Debsums tells me
nothing re cp and cpio (if I'm doing it right).
A Google groups search told me nothing.
