Yes.  That's due to a change in timezone data and adding leap seconds in 
glibc.  The tests have not caught up with the changes.  Look at the 
output of the tests:

-File /lost+found (inode #11, mod time Mon Sep 20 03:26:36 1993)
+File /lost+found (inode #11, mod time Mon Sep 20 03:26:18 1993)

Notice the time difference of 18 seconds?  I think that's the number of 
leap seconds between Jan 1 1970 and September 1993.
