skynugget,

Hmm, that's a problem. I just tested the Perl script and it shows the same result...

Code:
[bschwabe@IC-Layout ~]$ timetest.pl
 Date: 9 / 9 / 2011 
 Time: 10 : 4 : 38
...This means that there is an error in the way the Date is derived from the elapsed seconds since January 1st 1900.

I'll look into that and fix this
