There is one file added to the directory per day.  Firefox 0.9 on Windows XP
Service Pack 1, and Mozilla 1.4.2 on Linux (Red Hat 9) both show some of the
files as being from year 2003.  Every other FTP client I have tried shows all
files from year 2004.  (Command line FTP in Linux and Windows; gftp; FTP
Voyager; Internet Explorer.)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ftp://toms.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/eptoms/data/oz2004

Expected Results:  
All lines should have year 2004.
Same here - my ftp client sees 2004, but FF sees 2003.

I'm seeing this too using:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2

on Fedora Core 3 Linux.

The listing of ftp://mersenne.org/gimps/ exhibits this.
Files up to and including Mar 11 are shown correctly.
Files since then (Mar 21 and later) are shown a year earlier than they really
are. This ticket is dated Apr 1 - so Mar 11 is 3 weeks ago.
