Well a "real" fix sounded like a lot of work, and no one had the right 
combination of time/desire/knowledge/skill to go implement it. The 
"workaround" fix was discussed in this more recent thread:

http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2002-08/msg01233.php

It still isn't clear to me exactly what needs to be done to implement 
the workaround, and since I don't really *need* dates before 1970 for my 
own purposes (presently at least), I haven't tried to figure it out in 
favor of other priorities.

But I'm sure a fix would be enthusiastically greeted on the PATCHES list ;-)
