I think this is fixed now.

I've caught some issues myself, but haven't actually done any heavy
testing. For most format specifiers, I think just basic sanity checks
would suffice. Anything that involves computation (like week-based
year stuff) would also benefit from boundary value checks. For time
zone related things, testing inputs created by both localtime and
gmtime, and with different types of time zone settings (GMT, POSIX
with and without DST, old and new zoneinfo) would be useful.
