As the Date/Time utility attempts to change the date from the last day of the month to the first day of the following month, it displays the first day of the current month instead. For example, instead of displaying February 1, 2000, one day after the date was January 31, 2000, the Date/Time utility reports the date as January 1, 2000.


This problem occurs if the Date/Time utility in Control Panel is open after midnight on the last day of the month and the Month field is selected.
