Submission + - Adobe and Apple didn't unit test for "forward date" bugs. Do YOU? (adobe.com)

llamafirst writes: As the year flipped to 2013, we learned that Adobe and Apple don't test for "forward date" bugs. Adobe prevented any copy of FrameMaker 10 from launching and Apple broke Do Not Disturb for the first week of 2013. Surely some more critical and safety systems also have lurking issues. Got tips for catching time/date bugs "from the mysterious future"? (also, oblig link to Falsehoods programmers believe about time)
