When it is fed 2013-02-12, it is ambiguous and "approxidate" can and
should use whatever heuristics (including rejection of future) to
guess what the user wanted, but 2013-02-13 cannot be interpreted in
any other way, so we should parse it as such.

Patches welcome, as long as the fix does not make things worse for
cases other than you observed.
