As per suggestion of Samuel I installed a slightly enhanced patch that
better points out what to do in the future.

2007-12-11  Thomas Schwinge  <tschwinge@gnu.org>

        * inode.c (read_node, write_node): Use `st->st_atim', `st->st_mtim',
        `st->st_ctim'.  Suggest what needs to be done in the future.
        (read_node): Correctly initialize those.
