Timestamp Propagation

Hi,

To access the Alfresco Repository offline, I decided to synchronize content using webDAV (mapped to a drive letter).
I realized, that there is no timestamp propagation by default (thats why new content is not synchronized, as it is not recognized).

By setting
system.enableTimestampPropagation=true
and checking that folders should propagate the timestamp (contentModel.xml):
      <type name="cm:folder">
         <title>Folder</title>
         <parent>cm:cmobject</parent>
         <archive>true</archive>
         <associations>
            <child-association name="cm:contains">
               <source>
                  <mandatory>false</mandatory>
                  <many>true</many>
               </source>
               <target>
                  <class>sys:base</class>
                  <mandatory>false</mandatory>
                  <many>true</many>
               </target>
               <duplicate>false</duplicate>
               <propagateTimestamps>true</propagateTimestamps>
            </child-association>
         </associations>
      </type>
I expected that the propagation will be done, but unfortunately there is no effect.
Creating a subfolder or a subsubfolder or some files within these folders does not result in changing the "modification time" of any parent folders.

Am I missing some configuration or are these settings only valid by a complete "reinstallation" of alfresco?

I am using alfresco3.4.d community edition.

Thank you and regards,
Christian
