B19.1 under NT 4.0sp3: "cp -p" doesn't preserve modification date/time

If you copy a file using "cp -p" or "cp -a", the modification date/time
of the destination file is supposed to be set equal to the modification
date/time of the source file.  Instead, the destination file appears to
be stamped with the current date/time.  (Just as if you had entered your
"cp" without the "p" or "a" option.)

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
