cvs2svn fails to parse certain RCS files

From: Alex Zepeda <zipzippy_at_sonic.net>

In playing around with subversion, one of my first thoughts was to try and
setup a repository. So I ran a few of the KDE modules through cvs2svn
(kde-common, arts, kdelibs, kdemultimedia). All except for kdelibs worked

I'm using subversion from r3205, swig 1.3.15, python 2.2, FreeBSD-current
(more or less), and rcsparse.py from the viewcvs 0.9.2 tarball.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 675, in ?
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 672, in main
    util.run_app(convert, ctx, start_pass=start_pass)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/svn/util.py", line 38, in run_app
    return apply(func, (pool,) + args, kw)
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 623, in convert
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 498, in pass1
    os.path.walk(ctx.cvsroot, visit_file, (cd, p, stats))
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/posixpath.py", line 279, in walk
    func(arg, top, names)
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 165, in visit_file
    p.parse(open(pathname), cd)
  File "./rcsparse.py", line 303, in parse
  File "./rcsparse.py", line 229, in parse_rcs_tree
    timestamp = time.mktime(tuple(date_fields))
OverflowError: mktime argument out of range

With a few debuging prints I found that the first date that it barfs on
is: 2001. If I "fix" or remove this file, each subsequent
failure is on an April 1st date. Oy.

I've collected a few of the offending RCS files and put them up at
http://blarf.homeip.net:8080/rcs (if checking out a 185mb CVS repo from
cvsup.kde.org is a scary thought).

The RCS files look perfectly okay to me, but I'm not an RCS guru of any
sort. Any ideas on where this is comming from? Changing the date(s) by
hand to April 5th seems to fix everything. This is of course a less than
ideal solution.
