Why are you doing a --fetch here?  That will update sitecopy's stored 
state to match the current local modtime of the file, if you're using 
"state timesize".  It is expected that you won't see a modtime change 
after this sequence: the modtimes of files on the server will always be 
different to those locally, so sitecopy must ignore them after a 
--fetch.

If you enable "safe" mode then it will work how you expect for the 
second --fetch after you enable safe mode.
