This looks like a bug in the underlying platform. POSIX requires [1] that the output of ctime() fits in a 26-character buffer.  Note that a change has been recently made to time.asctime() to reject year > 9999.  See r85137 and issue6608.  I think for consistency, we should reject huge timestamps in time ctime() as well.
