Setting the current time may be allowed where setting an arbitrary
time is not (for instance, I know of an OS where directories are treated
that way). If your "touch" command has a -t or an -r option, try using
one of those to see if it gives an error. If it does not, you can run
it under strace (or whatever your system-call tracing program is named)
to see what system call is being used successfully.
