I have a similar experience moving files from a Sun to Cygwin, using tar.
On the Sun:
1-chablis$ find xxx -printf "%f %t\n"
xxx Thu Mar 25 19:32:57 1999
On Cygwin, after tar, ftp & untar from Sun to Cygwin
~: find xxx -printf "%f %t\n"
xxx Thu Mar 25 19:32:56 1999
The problem doesn't seem to happen in the other direction.
