year-2000 testing

If you can do so, please try running your system with the date in the year
2000 for a while. Richard Stallman asked if we had tested that GNU software
is free of year-2000 problems, and I think it's a good idea. Fortunately
we don't have too many COBOL programs :-) .

To do this, you'll probably need to run something like "clock -u -w"
after resetting the date with the "date" command.
