There's many discrepancies between OS X and Linux about time formatting...

OS X
>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> datetime(1900, 1, 1).strftime("%6Y")
'6Y'

Linux
>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> datetime(1900, 1, 1).strftime("%6Y")
'001900'

BTW, these discrepancies are already mentioned:
http://docs.python.org/dev/library/datetime.html#strftime-strptime-behavior

“The full set of format codes supported varies across platforms, because Python calls the platform C library’s strftime() function, and platform variations are common.”

We should had an asterisk to the "%Y" saying that the padding is not consistent across platforms.
