File data and timestamp

I have a binary file that is in my repository, libtemp.a, which has the 
following timestamp in cvsroot (i.e., timestamp in the Unix filesystem): Jun 18 
09:42.  Apparently, this is the time when I last tagged the file.

When I check out the file (with WinCVS, by the way), the date on the file is 
(as viewed by Win 2K): 5/3/2004 6:47 PM.  This is the date/time when I last 
committed the file.  This also agrees with the timestamp in the Entries file.

When I committed the file, the timestamp on the file was 12/24/2003 2:23 PM.  
It is important that this be the timestamp that is associated with the binary 
file, as it is pulled in from another source.  When I check this file out, I 
want the timestamp to continue to be 12/24/2003 2:23 PM.

(1) Is there a way that I should have committed this file such that I can get 
the behavior I want?

(2) How can I correct the situation for this particular file?
