timestamp changes when I ftp a file to server

I've set up two FreeBSD servers, (4.6 and 4.8) both have shown this same
behavior. When I ftp a file from a remote pc to the server, upon completion
of the upload the timestamp of the file advances to exactly 5 hours from the
I've confirmed that the server has the correct current time and date. It
also shows the correct time zone. So does the remote pc.
I've tried it from different pc's, different ftp clients, different versions
of Windows, all with the same result.
If a file on my pc was created at 2:06pm today, and I upload the file at
3:15pm, the completed file on the server will display a timestamp of 8:15pm
today, even though that time is in the future.
This screws up programs that look at the timestamp to perform
synchronization, like Dreamweaver.
Anyone seen this before?
