It seems that everyone but me remembered that tm_year is still based
on a 1900 offset. I guess we should note this in the
ctime(3)/mktime(3) man page, which is what I looked at to remind
myself of the calling convention.
It's in there, albeit tersely:
int tm_year; /* year - 1900 */
Can you suggest some additional text which would have made it obvious?
