Possibly you're suffering from this problem, noted in tests/chgrp/basic:

  # The following no-change chgrp command is supposed to update f's ctime,
  # but on OpenBSD, it appears to be a no-op for some file system types
  # (at least NFS) so g's ctime is more recent.  This is not a big deal;
  # this test works fine when the files are on a local file system (/tmp).

For what it's worth, I couldn't reproduce your problem on OpenBSD 3.4
x86.  I tried with the coreutils source on an NFS directory (exported
from Solaris 8) and on a local directory.

However, the problem has been reported on MacOS X hosts, e.g.:


This problem comes up often enough (i.e., buggy operating systems)
that perhaps we should simply disable the test?
