No such error here. I use StrongEd which doesn't need the filetyping

By the way, I've seen these weird dates as well. A couple of days ago I
decided to add some code to the main program to handle this (and a few
other date/time related issues). It will be in the next release, which
will also have Martin Avison's RegEx code.
