David, if I'm reading Richard correctly, he is saying that besides
the Directory access times, all file access times have been touched
too. This (correctly) doesn't happen on 2.0.30.

If it does happen on 2.1.5x, then that's a bug.

What "should" happen is that on a ls -R all directory access times are
updated. All file access times should remain as they are.
