This appears to be a typical characteristic of Windows systems, as if the
low order bits of the file time are "random." It hasn't appeared to be a
problem; I don't see it as often in Win2K. I've wondered whether cygwin
should mask off the low order bits, given that Windows works this way.
Is the above statement correct?
