The first (sort of).

The algorithm which resolves a date to a revision does not take a path
input, and it can potentially use the date of any revision. In reality,
it does a binary search, so it only uses the date of some small set of
revisions, but any bogus, misordered, or missing date can presumably
throw it off.
