I'll fix any bugs that I can recreate. I think you'll find through
the history of this project that any reported bug that I can recreate
BackupPC simply takes the file mtime from the backup and delivers
it to Archive::Zip, which makes the zip file. I suspect, as Daniel
mentioned, somewhere along the line the mtime (maybe in your unzip
program?) gets adjusted for localtime, and overflows from the year
1970 to 2038. But that's just a guess.
What unzip program are you using?
