time and date in CVS...

How can I make CVS to preserve date and time of a file.  When I add and commit a file to the CVS repository and then remove the file and try to update it, the file I get does not have the original date and time.  The following is an example;
# ls -l foo.c
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  swdev     18 Jun  6  2001 foo.c
# cvs add -kk foo.c
cvs server: scheduling file `foo.c' for addition on branch `test'
cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently
# cvs commit -m "This is a test" foo.c
RCS file: /cvs/cmtest/foo.c,v
Checking in foo.c;
/cvs/cmtest/foo.c,v  <--  foo.c
initial revision: 1.1
# rm -f foo.c
# cvs update
U foo.c
# ls -l
-rw-r--r--  1 root  swdev     18 Dec  7 10:14 foo.c
Notice the date was changed from June to Dec.
Is this the correct behavior for CVS?

Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
