I just tried the example for 'ggsave' and waited a minute between each run,

different time when run the second time.  Please post the code you  are
running, the system you are using and then an example of what the times
are.  Are you looking at the time 'modified' or 'created'; this will make a
difference.  So a few more particulars about your problem would be
helpful.  Try running the example for ggsave as I did and see if the times
