touch --

test importc[Line 5186] -

      # If I'm correctly reading the Single Unix Specification,
      # version 2, then "touch -t 197107040343" or "touch -t 203412251801"
      # should work.  But GNU touch seems to have other ideas.
      # I sort of wonder if this is lossage by the standards bodies,
      # I'm not sure.
      # Note that some versions of touch when used without -t don't handle
      # y2k and/or set the seconds reliably.
      # We should probably find a different way of doing this.
      touch 0704034371 bdir/subdir/file1
      touch 1225180134 cdir/cfile

touch was creating files called 0704034371 and 1225180134.  Which
were causing the test to fail.

I just poked around some more. was picking up touch from:


I imagine that you are using /usr/bin/touch, but I made
mine pick up touch from my ~/bin directory( which is gnu ).
