How old your $HOME is?

Today I got hit by some bug in Ubuntu. I checked what is going on and reported to bug tracker. But what is found out during checks?

Files from 2001 year. Yes, my “~/.bash_logout” is over 9 years old now. It only runs “clear” on text consoles but it is oldest not changed configuration file in my system. Created under Debian ‘potato’, survived upgrade to ‘woody’ and then to ‘sid’ which I use since it was created. During that time I had one system re-installation — when switched to x86-64 architecture.

According to results of “find” command older are only files from my master thesis which I wrote in 2000/2001. How old your $HOME is?
