That could be an NFS server which reuse inode numbers.  The
Linux user-mode NFS server (unfsd) is known for this.  Switch to
using kernel NFS server if that's your case.

The tool you used to carry your files (here, CVS) messed their
timestamps.  Use `make dist' if you need something more accurate.
