Any reason why a file would have an old timestamp?

I recently converted some directories to use
Subversion, and some files showed up with old
timestamps. Initially the "use commit time" was not
set, but now it is.

The files were imported in to Subversion on
10/29/2005. They were checked out on 10/31/2005. The
"use commit time" was then turned on, and the folders
were then deleted and re-checked out.

After a month of use, there are now some files with
timestamps from 2003(!). I would have thought every
timestamp we would see would be no older than

Is there some reason why these files might have old

They are up to date, just the timestamp is weird.
They do not appear to have been modified by anyone.

I deleted one of the files, did a "svn up" on it, and
it came down with the correct timestamp (10/29/2005).

The users are a little leery of the old timestamps.

Any suggestions?
