Reading beyond a buffer is somewhat safer than writing, but I agree
that checks must be done before calling asctime/ctime.   I thought it
would have to wait because it is a feature.  Some Linux users may
expect year 10000 to work.  (Maybe as a sentinel value somewhere.)
But you are the RM, so it is your call.
