This change is about the SimpleDateFormat format string. According to 
the JDK 1.4.2 API docs:

"Date and Time Patterns

Within date and time pattern strings, unquoted letters from 'A' to 'Z' 
and from 'a' to 'z' are interpreted as pattern letters representing the 
components of a date or time string."

See http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/classpath/2003-11/msg00204.html for 
more details.

If you still think it's a bug, I'd appreciate a test case that we can 
put into mauve.
