Hmm... how about picking either stat.st_ctime or stat.st_atime ? ...
(in theory st_ctime should be the status change from "" to "created",
right ?) ... The Susv3 standard does not clearly mention this ...
but would that assumption be wrong ? 

Does a chmod reset st_ctime ? ... if it does we may have to pick the 
oldest of the 3 st_*times ... (and st_mtime >= st_atime , right ?) ..
That brings down to 2 of the times ... Let's use that idea here and
hope that it is right ...

I'll commit it as soon as you make this change in the uploaded patch.
