MacBook Pro Intel i7
MacOS X 10.6.8
Steps to reproduce:
1. just open a file, every kind of file (.odt .doc .xls .ppt ...). Don't edit it.
2. look in the finder for file info, and you'll see modification time has been updated to now, even if you didn't edit the file.
opening a file, without editing it, change its modification time attribute
opening a file, without editing it, doesn't have to change modification time
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 184.108.40.206 release
Opening the same file with OpenOffice doesn't change the modification time.
LibreOffice changes the mtime BEFORE to open the file:
- open a file with OpenOffice, and keep it opened
- look in the finder: the file has still the original mtime
- open the same file with LibreOffice... and when the 'Document in use' alert pops up, the mtime of the file (still opened in OO) has already been changed, updated to now.
- so, even if I choose to cancel the fileopen process, the mtime of the file is changed
Looks like a dupe of bug 75467.

Yes, it is.
It seems MacOS 10.6.8 the bug appears only with MacOS 10.6.8 (and maybe older)
