bug#7184: Problems with timestamp on FAT32 directories

On an IOMega 500 GB Home Network Hard Drive with a FAT32 partition, all of the directories are showing up as "1969-12-31 16:00" (or essentially no date), but when viewing the directory in Windows Explorer, there is no problem. It doesn't matter if I use 'mkdir' to create a directory or create the directory from Windows; the result is the same. Files are okay. NTFS partitions are okay. I have not seen this issue reported when searching the Internet. I've using latest Cygwin 1.7.7 release. Here's a log of what I've done.

$ mkdir tmp
$ ls -ld tmp
drwxr-xr-x 1 Steven None 0 1969-12-31 16:00 tmp

$ touch test.txt
$ ls -l test.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 Steven None 0 2010-10-10 00:50 test.txt

$ which ls
$ ls -l /usr/bin/ls
-rwxr-xr-x 1 Steven root 128526 2010-06-25 07:42 /usr/bin/ls

Any idea what could be wrong?
