Heh.

It's now tempting to submit a bug report about a core dump when
I set my date to 1912.

In other words, that fixes the symptom, but not the problem, so
the PR should probably be updated with a workaround, but not
marked closed.

It doesn't mean you should feel obligated to fix it, just that
it's not resolved.
