newgroups has the same problem. I observed this some days ago but didn't
have time to investigate further, nnrpd/misc.c:NNTPtoGMT() looks ok (but I
don't understand why gmtime() is used, I think, you would have to make a
difference if the date given is GMT or local, when doing the 6-digit
assumptions).
