We stumbled over this on IRC as a guy asked how to set the ``creation

MC talks of ctime as it was creation time. Is there a specific reason
for that? I searched manpage and sourcecode. No hints.

Where did you get that source code ? There is no reference to "creation
time" in the current source code. You are right though that in the manpage
says "creation time".

Indeed there is one:

2005-09-05  Roland Illig  <roland illig gmx de>

        * info.c: [...] st_ctime is not the creation time,
        but the status change time.

And, Pavel, I think mc-devel was the appropriate mailing list, since this could (and maybe should) be seen as a bug report.

Anyway, the code has been fixed since a long time, and the man page since a few minutes.
