When you create a .pkg with productbuild --component, the FinderCreateTime properties of the toc of the .pkg archive are incorrect.

This is probably related to problem ID 34354817.

1. Create a .pkg archive:

productbuild --component /Applications/Notes.app /Applications testPkg4.pkg

2. dump the toc of the .pkg archive:

xar --dump-toc="toc.txt" -f testPkg4.pkg

3. Inspect the contents of the toc.txt file.

Expected Results:

The FinderCreateTime properties have correct values.

Actual Results:

The FinderCreateTime properties have incorrect values which are semi-random for the time value components.
