        Hello.  Whenit messes up again, try showing the output of ls -lTd,
which should show you the time and date regardless of whether it is within
the last 6 months.  I'm guessing the year is getting zorched, but that
ought to prove it.  Once that is shown, we can then try to answer the
question as to why this is happening.
