Bug Description

When I try a regex to extract the published date from filename, I get an error if it's before 1900.
You can reproduce this error by going to Add Book configuration and try this regex with that filename.

Regex used:
(?P<published>.+) - (?P<author>[^_]+)

Name of the file:

year - anything.pdf

These gave me errors
1790 - anything.pdf
1791 - anything.pdf
1899 - anything.pdf

But this works well:
1900 - anything.pdf

Details of error:
calibre, version 2.20.0

ERROR: Excepción no considerada: <b>ValueError</b>:year=1790 is before 1900; the datetime strftime() methods require year >= 1900

I've only tried it on Windows 7, but I think it could affect other OS.

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