My legacy site has a lot of <dtml-var somedatetimeobject fmt="%a %b %d">

this writes out the wrong day, because somedatetimeobject is just like you show above.

Also, I get different results instantiating a DateTime object with a string, vs. parts 
DateTime(y,m,d,h,m,s) vs. DateTime('YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS')
