Reading this makes it sound as if a fix were always to have run
sa-update but that wasn't the case.  The FH_DATE_PAST_20XX rule wasn't
fixed in the sa-update rules until later in the day.  For most of
January 1st the sa-update rules didn't have a fix.  So even for those
of us who regularly run sa-update no fix was available by that method.
At the time running sa-update didn't repair the problem.  Of course it
is available that way *now* though.  So on January 2nd and forward
this should no longer be a problem after an sa-update run.
