--- Comment #2 from David Bright <dab at freebsd.org> ---
If I'm not mistaken, the FAT file system stores timestamps in local time. When
that FAT file system is mounted in a Unix-like system (e.g., FreeBSD), the
timestamp is interpreted as if it is UTC; that system cannot know what the
timezone was on the system that wrote the FAT file system. So, since you are
+1:00 from UTC, you see the timestamp one hour in the future.
