In LR5.2, renaming photos changes the file creation date. I would prefer if it kept the original file creation date. Changing file modified date is fine.

What file type and operating system?

I'm using Windows 8 64bit and I've seen it on both nef's and jpg's. But it's not consistent. This happened to me when renaming ~17000 files and most files are ok, some are not.

Bonus: not all files were actually renamed in the rename operation. (I selected all files and hit rename photos)

There's a discussion with a screenshot here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/57555...

I've been able to reproduce on scans and other files with no exif metadata - would that fit with what you're seeing perhaps?
