I cannot reproduce this with today's CVS HEAD on fencepost.gnu.org
which claims to be

  Linux fencepost 2.4.20-19.9smp #1 SMP Tue Jul 15 17:04:18 EDT 2003 i686 

is it possible that this is some library bug?  Emacs calls `utimes'
to set the file's times (see sysdep.c:set_file_times).

I looked at the code both in Fcopy_file and in set_file_times, and
couldn't spot anything unusual or suspicious there.
