Which boost version do you use? In the current trunk version I see that
posix_time::to_tm(ptime) calls gregorian::to_tm to initialize date
portion of the tm structure.

Or were you referring to posix_time::to_tm(time_duration)? If so then
the comment explicitly says that the resulting tm structure has zeroed
date portion. Considering that the original argument is duration, I
think the function behavior is correct.
