Bug Description

version 2.8.0, 64 bit
Windows 8.1 64 bit

When editing a book's metadata, clearing the pubdate does not produce the expected "undefined" listing. The field shows "0101".

Using the search-and-replace to explicitly clear pubdate produces the same result -- the field contains "0101" after saving.

This bug existed in some earlier versions but was not present in 2.7.0 and a few prior revs.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
