You could build from source using HEAD. (This is probably not a good idea for
a production system.)
You could restructure your data model to not use arrays. (You probably
shouldn't be using them anyway. Arrays should be used for things that are
naturally arrays (e.g. vectors) and I would be surprised if this was the
case when you are storing dates.)

Also note that 8.1.3 is out and 8.1.4 will probably be out soon, so you
should be looking to upgrade in any case.
