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:
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 ;-)
