AW: why does wincvs show all files as modified

hi chuck, hi anyone,

i think my problem is caused by different timestamps, but i don't know a
solution by now.
after reading your mail (chuck) i compared both the two computers. my
cvs-server "lives" in timezone gmt+1 (germany...) and its actual time then
was 09:25:00. my wincvs-client also is in gmt+1, time 09:25:43. but i
thought this difference of 43 seconds couldn't be the problem.
so i reinstalled server and client again, imported some java-files (in one
directory) via wincvs-client, and checked them out with wincvs a few seconds
later.
the timestamps of the are these (date is in dd.mm.yy):
-> original files - 30.03.01 10:14
-> files in repository (after import) - 12.04.01 10:07
-> files in client-working-dir (after checkout) - 12.04.01 10:07
-> in wincvs all files are - 12.04.01 07:06:59 !!! (wincvs shows them as
"mod. file")
i think that's an internal problem of cvs or wincvs...
i hope there's anyone to help me to workauround this problem.
