John reports on irc:
[00:11] <freelock_> then using setup -- but "Add User" in setup.pl was giving me errors around date formats
[00:11] <freelock_> I think because there wasn't a user already, no default? couldn't find a legitimate date format it would accept for date of birth
[00:11] <freelock_> finally hacked the script where it was throwing the exception and set $format to a known value, and succeeded...
