Yeah.  I included the far-future cases in the committed patch
specifically to make it obvious if you were using tz files that lacked
post-2038 support.

I can't imagine that fixing this isn't pretty darn high on the Solaris
to-do list, anyway.  Financial apps doing, say, 30-year mortgage
projections are broken *today* on platforms without post-Y2038 calendar
