found the "problem" :)  :

   Revision 1.60 / (view) - annotate - [select for diffs] , Tue Nov 20 15:54:01 2001 UTC (6 weeks, 5 days ago) by loic1
   Branch: MAIN
   Changes since 1.59: +6 -4 lines
   Diff to previous 1.59
   set the default function to "NOW()" for timestamp fields only in insert mode (ie not in update mode)

well... would you mind if we turn this on again ?  The default mysql behaviour 
(using the mysql client or scripts) is to update the ts in *any* case, so 
I think it would be better the way it was in version 1.59... 

As an example, on one of my servers, there are cronjob scripts watching
for changes in an sql table: if a record changed (new timestamp),
it would run some progs to update /etc/passwd etc...  But if
the timestamp is not updated, it won't work... and that is PMA's work :)
