bug#644: 23.0.60; diary-anniversary failure


From: Eythan Weg
Subject: bug#644: 23.0.60; diary-anniversary failure
Date: Tue, 05 Aug 2008 11:11:21 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)

Makes sense.  I have not noticed my error because
normally I know the start year.  My error stemmed
from using the menu to insert an anniversary while
the cursor in the calendar buffer is on the
correct day and month of the current year (the
current year because the correct year was not
known, a common occurrence in regard to age).

Would it be wrong to allow future birth days in
diary-anniversary, so past and future are
symmetric?

Thank you.

   Where is the cursor (what date)?  The 0th anniversary will never appear.
