Yes, and some years ago I found out that on network shares some
applications create timestamps based on the client's system clock
and some on the server's. :-/ It took me several hours to figure this
out because in most cases our production process worked properly
and in some cases the dependencies weren't resolved properly. The
behaviour depended on weather it was a native Windows/OS/2 application
or an old MS-DOS application.

In mixed environments there can also occur some file synchronisation
problems regarding to NFS and Samba, especially on older NFS server
implementations.
