It looks like the problem is that the stream output is including a thousands
seperator when it shouldn't. The serialization should be 20050527 with no
number seperators. So it appears that we cannot depend on the stream not
using the thousands separtor in date_time/date_formatting.hpp (line 81) where
the year is actully output:

      std::basic_ostringstream<charT> ss;
      ss << ymd.year;

We'll look into fixing this...
