Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

This is a strange bug, not an important one.
Today I was trying to find something in the logs and got confused when the entry was "Sunday, 1 Jan".
As shown in the attachment older entries have wrong weekdays.
This behaviour also happens on another computer which has 10.10 installed.

I have this on Maverick as well. I think it could have been caused by me moving my clock 1 week forward and confusing it. I know have a Monday 31 Jan, and a Tuesday 31 Jan. See attached file.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
