           Summary: FileInfo.CreationTime returns last modified time
                    instead of creation time
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.8.x
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Sys.Core
        AssignedTo: jbevain at novell.com

The accessors:


do not return the creation time listed by the filesystem - instead they return
the last modified time.

I have only tested this on MacOS Snow Leopard.  The .NET versions of these
methods return the actual creation time listed by the filesystem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write a program that uses FileInfo.CreationTime and prints out the value for
a file
2. Compare that value against what is reported by the filesystem

Actual Results:  
BUG: The value is actually the last modified time - not the creationtime.

Expected Results:  
I expect to get the file creation time as listed by the filesystem.
