st->mtime is not updated with new mtime in src/create.c:846:start_header() thus list.c:simple_print_header() prints original value of mtime, instead of the new one.

tar --mtime=/ --index-file=create_index.txt -cvvf dir.tar dir/
tar --index-file=list_index.txt -tvf dir.tar
diff create_index.txt list_index.txt
