zircon$ date +%99Y
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Obviously date should never dump core (although the format string
used here is not one you'd ever normally want to use).

Here's a backtrace from gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

This may actually be a bug in the strftime implementation, 
since the arguments date has passed to it look plausible to me.
Feel free to reassign if that's the case.
I'm using libc6 version 2.2.4-7.

This report was filed a year ago, and I can't reproduce this on i386
with glibc 2.3.1, so I am assuming the bug has been fixed in the
meantime.  Submitter, please reopen the report if the problem still
occurs for you.
