Finally got Ubuntu One to sync on my netbook running Lucid, but have noticed that all the files on my netbook have a timestamp of today (or whatever time I downloaded/sync'd them).
Is this correct, if I check the web interface they all have the timestamps I expect to see.... ie the correct creation date/time.
This is correct. When you sync a new computer the files that are downloaded will show the current timestamp.

Is this a design choice? If I sync to a new laptop, I want to "look for that file I worked with John two months ago". It's impossible to do so with all timestamps changed.
Dropbox doesn't wipe out file dates...
All my timestamps were updated by UbuntuOne a few days ago (March 2012) to the sync time, not the modification time. This is braindead behaviour if it's intentional. If it's a bug then it's unforgiveable.
I NOW NO LONGER KNOW WHICH FILES WERE WORKED ON LAST
UBUNTUONE HAS LOST VALUABLE INFORMATION OF MINE.
especially considering it should be easy to fix. I really don't understand to problem about not supporting it.

Yes, it's the main reason that keeps me from using Ubuntu One, too!
