The POSIX description of the chmod system call says that
"Upon successful completion, chmod() shall mark for update the
st_ctime field of the file."
See http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/chmod.html Of course, this must also hold for the chmod command, since it is implemented using the chmod function.
The attached execution log shows that a successful invocation of 'chmod' did not bump the ctime.
