Peter, when you did the git bisect, which versions did you end up
testing? I ask because this commit later got reverted.

Nicholas, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think changing the date
in the filename should have made any difference to anything if maxage
isn't being used. The only other thing this patch did was set the rtime
correctly, which was later dealt with more carefully in Abdo's patches
c094304f937e13e80ce464ff7819affd39d298cc and
0c17350e4f72282a7a8ac3180de713b3b322dcea . It might help to know whether
the bug is present at that point.
