The %Y fix I originally gave in PR4523 had to be dropped due to %Y
not being universal :( This lead to a rather icky fix which involved
doing a %y and if the year was <70 then it was assumed to be after 2000, if
not then it was assumed to be during 1900. A better fix is below

Replace the code

        $year=`date +%y`;
        $year += ($year < 70) ? 2000 : 1900;
        $date = $year . `date +%m%d:%H%M%S`;



This has the advantage of not only removing the Y2K kludge, but also removes
two calls to the date command and does the job in a smaller amount of code.
