I have updated the box (HEAD from Friday, alpha). The phenomenon
I haven't observed any mtime changes on non-executable files.
I'm running a small program that uses a kqueue(2) EVFILT_VNODE/NOTE_ATTRIB
filter to watch for changes to /bin/*. During the last few hours
some files there have changed their mtime without a kernel event
being triggered. (An explicit touch(1) does trigger an event.)
