Yes, technically one could argue it's a bug in date-time code. That said,
AFAIK this this is the only standard lib that has this limitation. And,
unfortunately, it's not something that would be easy or quick to fix in
date-time -- hence the temporary marking of this as expected until one of us
gets a chance to make it work. Anyway, that's how I remember the issue
details without doing the necessary archeology to be sure...
