File creation date changes when updating ID3 tags

After I updated to Windows Vista (also probably installed some additional components), every time I save the new ID3v2 tags for a file, its creation date changes together with the update date.

As I know, this is possible only when the file is deleted and then recreated. But now I always see dates like these in the Windows file properties dialog:
Created: ‎18 ‎января ‎2009 ‎г., ‏‎5:33:45
Updated: ‎18 ‎января ‎2009 ‎г., ‏‎5:33:46

What a pity that now foobar2000 makes me lose the dates when my music data had been collected

I have this problem with only one file.
After I update this album's tags, the creation date changes only on track 20.  :o
