My earlier mail was wrong. Checking the source, the test for whether
to print the year or the time is for files older than six months plus
or minus. This is even documented in the manual page:

     If the modification time of the file is more than 6 months in the past or
     future, then the year of the last modification is displayed in place of
     the hour and minute fields.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. To get complete time information, use
the -lT.
