Mountain Lion is killing my Date Modified dates!
Has anybody noticed Mountain Lion changing their folders' Date Modified dates?
I've got an external HD for my music, which runs about 200gig in almost 1900 folders within a folder entitled iTunes. The problem is that when I view the top level of that folder by Date Modified I can often see folders that haven't been modified in months or years jumping to the top. I frequently view folders by how recently I've added songs, so this behaviour is pretty problematic.
Does anybody have any thoughts on that?

I had a look, and it turns out that many of my artist folders now have mod dates of 12:09 or 12:10 PM today.
There doesn't seem to be any correlation to what I've played recently or how long I've had particular albums.
The change seems to be working its way through folders by Name; nearly everything from #,A to M.
At least the mod dates on individual songs are still OK.
I'm not even signed in to iTunes store, much less match/cloud.
Something odd is going on.
Just checked another Mac w a big iTunes Library, iTunes 11.0.1, that's been played a lot recently. There's no sign of artist folder's mod dates changing.
Problem might be related to recent (Feb 19) 11.0.1->11.0.2 update.

I don't think this is a weird behaviour. I would presume that something has indeed modified those files for some reason.
However, if you're using iTunes, there shouldn't be a need to navigate through the files in the Finder. It may be that manipulating these files in the Finder has caused the modification date to change. You can display the Modification date in iTunes.
A quick check through my iTunes files shows the mod dates to be as expected -- some dating back to 2003. I'm on 11.02.
