No, hg used to not validate times or dates, and so it silently ate
whatever it was given.  Tailor generated invalid dates, which we
unfortunately accepted.

We now validate times and dates during commits, which is what you're
seeing.  For existing repos that contain bad times, we silently set the
timezone to zero if it's missing (as was the case with some tools) or
bogus (Tailor).

Are you sure you have a recent version of Tailor?  The current version
of Tailor allegedly has this problem fixed.
