My limited testing seems to indicate that, for a newly created file,
as long as it is not closed by the application that writes to it, all
3 of the file's times are identical, set to the time the file was
created, and do not change.  Only when the file is closed, the
last-write and last-access times are updated.

This is on Windows XP with NTFS volumes.
