Hm.  Looking at parsedate.y in 2.3, there are actually a whole bunch of
places that should be handling this:

            if ($4 > 100) {
                /* assume year is YYYY format, so need not to add 1900 */
                yyYear = $4;
            } else {
                /* assume year is YY format, so need to add 1900 */
                yyYear = $4 + (yyYear / 100 + (yyYear % 100 - $4) / 50) * 100;
            }

I'm not sure why it's not doing what you want.  Hurm.  Although I also
have no idea what that formula is really doing, since it's not obviously
just adding 1900.
