Even when long file names are supported, the three time values returned by stat might be identical if the file was last written by a program which used legacy DOS functions that don't know about long file names.

Many DOS programs catch Ctrl-C keystrokes and Critical Errors, and handle them in customized ways. If this handling prevents DOS from realizing that the program was aborted due to these reasons, bits 8-17 of the value returned by system will most probably be zero. Don't count on these bits to hold the signal number!
