I think this might be a duplicate...  Sorry if it is.

Confidential:   no
Synopsis:       Timestamps in master files are wrong upon check in.
Severity:       serious
Priority:       medium
Category:       cvs-1.11
Class:          sw-bug
Release:        cvs-1.11
System:         SunOS thor 5.7 Generic_106541-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250
Architecture:   sun4

        Files checked into a respository take the time of check in instead
        of the modification time of the file being checked in.  I know this
        my happen with keyword substution, but these particular files have
        no RCS keywords in them!
        Change a file (with no RCS keywords in it).  Commit this file.
        Release the working directory (with cvs release -d).  Next, checkout
        the module this file was committed to (cvs co foo).  According to the
        documentation I have read, the file should have the modification time
        of when the file was checked in.  Instead, it has the time of check in.
        not known
