Windows Documents and Settings importer does not import modification times

Bug Description

When I installed Ubuntu on a Vista machine, it prompted and kindly imported all of my documents, favorites and other settings.

However, all of the documents had a time stamp of the installer time. If documents are going to copied from another OS during an upgrade to Ubuntu, I believe it is *imperative* that the modification (mtime) times be transferred properly... I use my mtimes to track all kind of document things (particularly with photos that do not contain their own internal timestamps).

Thank you for your help!
