We have seen a problem with OSX clients saving Excel files to our
Netware volume. When changes are saved to the file, the modification
date never changes from the creation date.

We have various versions of OSX (10.3.x, 10.4.x). We don't see the same
problems with Excel on Windows clients. We've observed the problem on
Netware 6.5 SP3 with post SP3 patches (including NSS) and 6.5 SP5 test
environment. In both instances, we are running with ExtendedMac
enabled, and have turned off case sensitivity.

We've tested with a number of other file types (Word, Powerpoint, etc.)
and the problem doesn't seem to be present in those products. Have
others seen this? I spent quite a bit of time searching the newsgroups,
Novell KB, Apple KB, Microsoft KB, and Google, and haven't turned up
anything conclusive. Since I don't use OSX myself, I'm trying to track
down information on what versions of Office are in question, and if they
are patched.

I'm mostly curious to see if others have had this problem, and if so,
what was the resolution. I really looks like a bug in Excel to me.

Thanks for any input you can provide.
