Description Steve Langasek 2003-05-31 21:28:45 UTC
Viewing the properties of a writable file on the server using Win2K or WinXP
file explorer corrupts the file's timestamp when running on Linux/Alpha.  The
client sends a trans2 SET_FILE_BASIC_INFO command with all times set to
0xffffffffffffffff.  Normally, this causes the timestamp conversion routine to
reject the timestamp as invalid, converting it to 0; however, it does this only
as a side-effect, and not because it recognizes 0xffffffffffffffff as a special
value.  On most systems, this will result in a timestamp value that's outside of
the range (TIME_T_MAX,TIME_T_MIN) -- *except* on machines which support a 64-bit
signed time_t, such as Linux/Alpha.  The fix is to recognize this special value
and convert it to 0 on all platforms.

Patch to follow.
