	The cal(1) man page states:
     The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in 1752 on the 3rd
     of September.  By this time, most countries had recognized the reforma-
     tion (although a few did not recognize it until the early 1900's.)  Ten
     days following that date were eliminated by the reformation, so the cal-
     endar for that month is a bit unusual.

	However, 11 days are missing from September (the 3rd - 13th).

	Adjust your clocks by one day. :)  Seriously, determine which is
	correct and adjust the other.
