When a file is kept open, Windows often (in my experience) leaves the
"last modified" timestamp at the previous value. Once all connections
to the database are closed, the server releases the file and the timestamp
is updated.

This used to freak me out quite a bit, but I've learned to live with it :-)

It does. But the timestamp in the Windows Explorer doesn't show it.
