I don't think that the issue can be called a bug. If we pick another year (ex: 1904), you cannot compare two datetimes anymore:
"This solution has some very undesirable properties - namely that Mar 1st is now less than Feb 29th!"
http://bugs.python.org/issue14157#msg160637

If you want to handle "Feb 29", add an explicit year.

This issue is maybe a documentation issue: datetime.datetime.strptime() should warn users that calling datetime.datetime.strptime() without year may fail for Feb 29.
