Is there a setting to retain attributes when
copying files in Nautilus?

1. create a folder "ztmp"
2. copy an existing folder and paste it into ztmp
the newly pasted ztmp files have the current date
and time attribute rather then the original

Perhaps this is how it worked in 7.10 (I passed on
that version) - however the attributes are preserved
in 7.04.  Yes I know about cp -p but need to know
about Nautilus.
