Yes.  These are limitations of comparing objects that have only
a bobobase_modification_time timestamp.
See ZSyncer/README.txt, in the "Usage" section.

Solving this problem is hard. See ZSyncer/TODO.txt.

I have no experience running clients and server on different
platforms, but I doubt that is the issue.

Do the system clocks on client and server agree?
It's best if they are as close as you can make them.

You might also try adjusting the "fudge_secs" value in ZSyncer/Config.py.
