Well, this is because Debian packages are built
with --enable-integer-datetimes. However we don't build the RPMs with
that. This has been proposed before AFAIR, but it has been rejected.

Also I want to remind that these packages are not "official". Debian
packages and RPMs are built by different people.

So you should dump/reload I think, or rebuild our SRPM
with --enable-integer-datetimes enabled.
