Thanks all you folks!
The missing piece of information, as guessed by Paul Eggert:
All commands from the report were executed a few hours before reporting,so it
was Oct,15... a few days from entering Daylight Saving time.
Tried all your suggestions they work:
> date +%Y --date='20101017'
date: invalid date `20101017'
> date +%Y --date='20101017 12:00'
> date +%Y --date='20101017 -Z'
> date +%Y --date='20101017 +Z'
> date --version
date (GNU coreutils) 6.11
And thanks for pointing the FAQ, Eric and Bob!! -> Shame on me... next time I
should try a bit harder on my searching arguments. =]
