I know POSIX says and my tests on current releases verify 1969-99, 2000-68, but
could this be thrown off by localization interfering in some cases, as was
/proc/loadavg, because a function started using locales?
These files and related functions do not seem candidates to be affected by the
recent patch for ls problems with symlinks, so BLODA blocking pre-1980 times?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
