I'm in the process of updating the kolab-cyrus-imapd package for the changes
in cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13-10, but I'm seeing something weird.  The diff
between -9 and -10 is full of changes like this:

diff -ur cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13-9/debian/copyright cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13-10/debian/copyright
--- cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13-9/debian/copyright   2007-01-03 13:58:14.000000000 +0100
+++ cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13-10/debian/copyright  2007-01-03 13:58:52.000000000 +0100
@@ -1,4 +1,4 @@

 This package was debianized by Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh at debian.org> on
 Wed Sep 12 09:35:30 BRT 2001, based on previous work by Michael-John Turner

First of all, this file wasn't changed in any other way.  And second, time is
going backwards.

Do you have an explanation for this?
