Time stamps are not normally written by applications themselves - the
time stamps are managed by the file system. The only time
applications mess with time stamps is if e.g. they wish to retain the
original timestamp after an edit.

I have never noticed time stamps not being updated. After all, time
stamps are one of the things that disc backup/synchronisation
applications (e.g. SyncDiscs, DirSync, SafeStore) use to determine
whether to copy a file or not.
