Pajama Sam and the Case of the Timestamps 

Just stumbled over something weird.

Saving a game in Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide when it's Dark outside for the first time in years and up came this console warning:

User picked target 'pajama-us' (gameid 'pajama')...
Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCUMM [all games]
Starting 'Pajama Sam 1: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside'
WARNING: DefaultSaveFileManager: failed to open 'Games:ScummVM/saves/timestamps' file to save timestamps!

I didn't had this file in my saves drawer, afterwards i had, consisting of a list of all the available save states in this drawer, looking like this:

twc-win.005 4294967295
Error.mys 4294967295
timestamps 4294967295
wmefan-1_1_2_Ritter-win.000 4294967295
ringworld2-cd.012 4294967295
dw-cd.006 4294967295
ringworld2-cd.013 4294967295
ringworld2-cd.014 4294967295
camelot-amiga.029 4294967295
zak-fm.s01 4294967295
pajama-us-pajama.sg1 4294967295

Three questions:

1) Why does (as it seems) only Pajama Sam create this file?
2) What purpose has it?
3) Why are the numbers all the same?
4) Why doesn't any other game (and i have lots installed) create/need this file? Probably other HE games do, haven't checked that.
5) Why can't i count?


Thank you
