The latter is simply a way to get more information in there – if
there’s no year, it either means the current year (i. e. 2011) or the
last 365 days (i. e. January 3rd, 2010 – now). I don’t know which of
these, although I’d guess it is the former again to avoid ambiguities
when dealing with broken file systems.

Best regards,

Put your trust in those who are worthy.
