.so file can b newer than executable #dynamic library

-rwxr-xr-x 1 bint ccL026  16M Sep 14 15:24 libETSMinervaBust-g.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 bint ccL026  19M Sep 14 14:50 minerva-g*

As shown in this real example, the executable was not updated when the .so file was.

I believe with static linking, this would never happen.
