I doubt that it could be _anything_but_ the time stamps issue.
verify-visited-file-modtime, the function that causes this warning to
appear, looks at nothing else but on file's time stamp (assuming that
the `stat' system call doesn't fail for files on that mount point).

To find out what's going on, invoke the function visited-file-modtime
from the buffer of the offending file, and compare the result it
returns with the time stamp for that file returned by file-attributes.
