time bug in Python 2.2(Windows)?

I am using the time module to convert the creation date of a file to a
date format for comparison.

The creation time of the file I am looking at is 3/19/2002 at 7:14:32

os.stat returns a tuple of:
 (33206, 0L, 4, 1, 0, 0, 2536L, 1028240652, 1016594072, 1016594072)

calling time.ctime(1016594072) returns this tuple:
 (2002, 3, 20, 3, 14, 32, 2, 79, 0)

Clearly something is amiss here, but wherein lies the problem? Is it
the value returned from stat? Am I not doing something correctly?
