Actually, we can forget about the timestamps.  I finally figured out
what circumstances under which this bug happens: I am trying to export
from a system where some of the symlinks in the project are broken.

Here's my setup: I sync my home directory on my laptop and desktop
computers using Unison.  In my project, I have symlinks to files in
~/images/, but since my laptop hard drive has less capacity than the
one in my desktop, I only keep ~/images/ on my desktop.  As a result
of this setup, some symlinks in my org-mode project are broken on my
laptop.  When I publish my project on my desktop, where no symlinks
are broken, org-publish behaves as expected; when I publish the same
project on my laptop, where some symlinks are broken, org-publish
appears to succeed, but publishes no changes.

I am really sorry for such a delayed response, but my university
semester started up again, which has been really hectic because of the
Feburary Christchurch earthquake.

Kind regards,
Aidan Gauland
