I understand that the issue is because the C standard does not specify the length of the string returned by '%Y'.

The changeset 230f0956aaa3 adds a test to verify that either '%Y' or '%4Y' returns a 4-digits value usable to produce ISO-8601 representations.

Now it is a documentation issue: add a comment to the "%Y" specifier saying that the padding is not applicable to all platforms and in such case the "%4Y" specifier should return the 4-digit value.
