It happened too fast. I'm using a script. Here it is with a sleep.

$ mkdir -p /tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625
$ touch /tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile
$ stat /tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile
  File: `/tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile'
  Size: 0               Blocks: 0          IO Block: 4096   regular empty file

$ sleep 2
$ touch -m -d 2110-01-01 /tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile
$ stat /tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile
  File: `/tmp/tmp.RZFIqs7625/somefile'

The script I used:
#!/bin/bash

set -x

mkdir -p /tmp/tmp.e0EkZhvZQR
touch /tmp/tmp.e0EkZhvZQR/somefile
stat /tmp/tmp.e0EkZhvZQR/somefile
sleep 2
touch -m -d 2110-01-01 /tmp/tmp.e0EkZhvZQR/somefile
stat /tmp/tmp.e0EkZhvZQR/somefile
Here's how I ran it:
$ /tmp/foo.sh |& perl -p -e 's@^\+@\$@'
I just cut-and-pasted the middle of the output.

Ciao!
