File modification timestamps on POSIX file systems won't update over NCP

Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
File storage accessed via NCP (e.g. through the Novell Client)


When modifying documents using Microsoft Word over NCP the modification timestamp of the file on POSIX file systems (e.g. ReiserFS) is not updated.

This does not happen on NSS volumes or with a different application (e.g. Microsoft Wordpad).


Novell Technical Services is testing a patch to resolve this issue.
