If I do the Windows equivalent of 'touch'-ing the .beam files, the warnings go away. So it looks like for whatever reason, the .beam files are getting a slightly older file datetime than the src files, causing the warnings. The file datetime is set by the 'unzip' so I'm not sure it's something you'll be able to control (unless you can somehow control the unzip order).

Thanks for digging into this. I agree the warning is confusing. I wonder
whether if we specified the files to the zip command in a different
order we could avoid this. I bet zip is simple enough to just unpack in
the same (or reverse) order it packed in.
