Push File pushes Vendor Configuration File repeatedly every few hours instead of once

Correct, just as a task through the GUI, by opening the device, clicking
Push File, clicking on the Vendor Config File. It gets queued and applied
and disappears from the queue, no faults, but then it seems to push again a
few hours later and again a few hours later, all by itself, without being
asked for. No provision script is being used.

As I said I can trigger it to happen right away simply by clicking
"refresh" to the right of "Download" in the parameter list. This is not the
behavior I would expect.

Could it have something to do with the timestamps? I sometimes see a weird
mix of 1970 and the current year for timestamps under "Download". I don't
know how these timestamps work, but my guess was that somehow the timestamp
makes it think it hasn't updated the configuration for 47 years..
