 Can someone do regression testing on that patch? My shell is not 
 working yet ;-).
 Also, the specs are very unclear on how to handle 'Z' vs 'z', sp 
 tells me that it works either way on Windows/MS Runtime. I think we 
 should just emulate Microsoft on this.

+That patch does not work (it also has a typo ;-).
+I run that program on windows and get:
+~ $ ./dtsp.exe
+Input: 20030407210500Z  Mask: yyyyMMddHHmmssZ

+(notice that my timezone is GMT+2).
+I have a 1 line patch that fixes this the I didn't apply last night
+because some unit test were failing. It turns out that those tests
+also fail without my little patch, so I'll apply it.
