 Log Message:
 PR/34055: Kevin Massey: Date uses a fixed 1K buffer for strftime
 but does not check when strftime fails because the buffer is too small.
 Our implementation of strftime does not NUL terminat the buffer
 on failure (it does not have to; the results are undefined), so
 garbage gets printed. Use a dynamically allocated buffer instead.
