mktime() can't handle dates before 1970
Imported from http://bugzilla.roxen.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3479
Reported by Arjan van Staalduijnen, RTL iMedia firstname.lastname@example.org
Newer versions of Pike 7.2 have a problem in the mktime() function. Those versions are unable to process dates of before 1970.
Pike 7.2.359 does NOT show this problem, version 7.2.489 does. I have no versions in between...
Possibly this bug is related to bug #3270...???
(Problem was reported by a collegue - I have not tested it myself)
